Pflugerville’s fief­dom

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

Re: July 16 ar­ti­cle “Law a peril or guard to free speech pro­tec­tion?”

The Pflugerville City Coun­cil has chal­lenged the Texas Open Meet­ings Act be­cause that act in­fringes on the Con­sti­tu­tion. Coun­cil mem­bers think the Con­sti­tu­tion gives them the right to say any­thing they want out­side of the ob­ser­va­tion or hear­ing of the pub­lic cit­i­zens who elected them.

Since when did Pflugerville be­come an im­pe­rial fief­dom?

I would not call the City Coun­cil’s ac­tion coura­geous. I would call their ac­tion pub­lic cor­rup­tion. Coun­cil mem­bers who are pub­licly cor­rupt should be re­moved from of­fice im­me­di­ately, and their penalty should be 10 times greater than what the Open Meet­ings Act pre­scribes. John Wil­liams
