THROWING THE UNDERDOGS A BONE
 
 
The only thing Rick Longoria has going for him is no one on the city commission will give Roman Perez the time of day.  To a commissioner they all know he is a pathological liar who cannot be trusted with any information.  Roman Perez's election will be a victory for Tony Martinez, because no one on the city commission will work with him, thereby empowering Tony Martinez to move forward.

Rick Longoria as a person or city commissioner has never shown conviction or courage.  The only reason he was not seen on camera bickering endlessly with Tony Martinez is because Tony Martinez was smart enough to not engage him - Tony simply ignored him.  Pat Ahumada and Rick Longoria were hell bent on putting on a show 4-8 years ago.

THE BONE

Rick Longoria would leave Executive Session a eunuch every time.  Tony would threaten him to remain silent about what was said in executive session and Rick complied because he has no conviction or courage.  This should be the issue Roman Perez and Pat Ahumada are using.

COMMISSIONERS ARE NOT BARRED FROM PUBLICLY DISCUSSING WHAT HAPPENS IN EXECUTIVE SESSION
"Section 551.146 does not prohibit members of the governmental body or other persons who attend an executive session from making public statements about the subject matter of the executive session.415

Other statutes or duties, however, may limit what a member of the governmental body may say
publicly."

See 2014 AG Handbook - page 63 What cannot be disclose is the Certified Agenda. See Also AG Opinion

All Commissioners are free to publicly discuss threats by Tony Martinez which are lodged in executive session.  They are free to discuss illegal activity.

Abraham Galonsky was in executive session during the sale of the Casa del Nylon and the El Cid building.  Since when does a group of investors discuss what they are willing to pay for a building  in front of the seller.  It was illegal and Rick Longoria lacking conviction and courage refused to tell the people the truth.  He cared more about Tony Martinez's bogus threats to have him charged with a crime if he broke the silence.

AG HANDBOOK EXPRESSLY SAYS - SELLER OF REAL ESTATE MAY NOT BE IN EXECUTIVE SESSION

CLICK SEE PAGE 54

HERE IS THE DEAL CITY COMMISSIONERS

By failing to demand Sossi justify his decision in writing, you waived any affirmative defense you may have had to criminal prosecution. Tex Gov. Code 551.144

A CITY COMMISSIONER CAN BE PROSECUTED FOR PARTICIPATING IN AN ILLEGAL CLOSED MEETING

See, Tovar v. State, 978 S.W.2d 584 (Tex. Crim. App. 1998).  Thereafter the Texas Legislature Amended the law to provide for good faith exception such as - being lied to by Mark Sossi.  great right?, unless you never asked him to justify his decision to place an item in Executive Session - then you have no defense.

THE FEDERAL COURTS AND AG HAVE MADE CLEAR DURING REAL ESTATE DEALS THIRD PARTIES OTHER THEN CITY EMPLOYEES CANNOT PARTICIPATE IN EXECUTIVE SESSION

Click for Federal Opinion see page 787

"The City asserts that its closed meetings with Mavericks representatives and real estate owner Woodbine Development Corporation representatives are encompassed within this real estate exception. The City's interpretation misreads the provision. The members of the Committee "may consult with their employees in private, but may not consult with other third parties in private." Op.Tex.Att'y Gen. No. DM-191 (1992)."
SO WHY HAS RICK LONGORIA REMAINED SILENT

Rick could not find his gonads with the Hubble Telescope.  He has no conviction or courage.

So there is your bone Roman and Pat - see what you can do with it.

Your comment on Galonsky is rejected because I have two sources who were there during the Casa Del Nylon deal and the El Cid deal and both described in detail how things went down.

SO I can go with what I am being told by a person I know, or with an anony who may have something to hide.
