The rant posted on Facebook by the mayor is nothing less than emotional rhetoric if not an outright misrepresentation of the truth.

Absolutely NO ONE has spoke against fixing or adding new fields. NO ONE has denied the fact that there is a need to improve our existing parks. Rather we have been asking for the the plan! The citizens of this community had to go so far as to present to the City a petition that calls for a PLAN and for the voters to decide it's fate. How is that a fight against the youth of the Floresville area?

The real fight is against the citizens of this community and anyone who does not blindly follow the mayor. The mayor and his puppets continue to needlessly obligate the taxpayers for projects under the guise that they are for "the benefit of Floresville", despite citizens desires or even the needs of the City.

Oddly enough, one of the mayors Facebook followers posted to his comment the following: "Sadly, ignorance and stupidity make for something more powerful than ideology, it's called self-righteous blindness." This person hit the nail on the head!

If asking questions of elected officials or in a City Council meeting is a radical movement, then label me a radical!

If wanting to see a plan of how taxpayer dollars are going to be spent before they are obligated is the action of an extremist, then call me an extremist!

Mayor, answer our questions with fact not rhetoric!

Where is the written plan for this sports complex?
How many fields are going to be repaired and improved?
How many new fields of each type (football/baseball/softball/soccer etc) are going to be built?
How many will be lighted?
How and and what is the cost of maintaining these fields?
What concession facilities will be built and who will run them?

Asking questions about how tax dollars (regardless of their source) are going to be spent and how elected officials are going to provide for the infrastructure needs of our community is not a radical, extremist ideology. It is a right provided to all citizens by the constitutions of the United States and the State of Texas.
