The City Council is again trying to hide what they are doing form the voters. Any E-mail whether on their office computer or on their personal computer dealing with any business with the city or potential business with the city should be subject to the Open Meetings act and freedom of information act of the Great State Of Texas. The city council is trying to stifle access when it should be open. They say their progressive but they are playing the good ole boy system.

Susi Byrd and Mayor Cook are leaving because they have run out of time and their terms end in June. Ortega should have to resign once he filed for the Mayor's Office. The thing is the rule is for employees of the city. You file to run for office you must take a leave of absence or retire or resign. The same standard should be for elected officials.
