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
