City to waste more public money on futile legal appeal that public doesn't have a right to see public documents
First, what could possibly be in an old, draft report on road maintenance that the city is so terrified of the public seeing? Did they find Jimmy Hoffa's body under 101?
Second, did they not read Judge Timothy Casserly's ruling? He shredded their ridiculous argument that city workers should be shielded from public questions about public money. The Public Records Act is there for a reason!
While Glenn Sabine has apparently taken it upon himself to file an appeal, the council is meeting in a closed session tomorrow.
I hope Kristin Gaspar will honor her campaign promises about open government, break ranks with Jerome Stocks who seems to be on some Nixonian paranoid control trip, and put an end to this silliness.
