This Time For Reals!

According to the El Paso Times, Romero has submitted his official resignation letter: “Romero,who earlier this month announced he was resigning as councilman for health reasons, submitted a formal resignation letter to the city on Thursday. In the letter he said his resignation is effective Feb. 23.”

But, it would appear that his resignation doesn’t get him out of answering the questions asked by Austin Attorney Ross Fischer.  Instead, both Romero and Gonzales were given until February 16th to submit their answers and then the city will release the investigation’s findings after a Feb. 24 meeting.

Just to be clear, this investigation is separate from the ethics complaint that was filed against both Romero and Gonzales:  “The Ethics Commission met Wednesday and consulted with Fischer. The commission requested he conduct more interviews and develop a witness list with individuals that may be able to provide evidence for the investigation. A hearing will be held at a future date once all of the evidence has been compiled.”

Anyone care to hazard a guess as to what will happen with Gonzales?

  1. As for Gonzalez, you know damn well he’ll get off scot free, just like always. Romero has thrown himself under the bus, and that will be the end of it. At least, until the next one gets caught with their fist in the cookie jar, anyway.

  2. TOMMY GONZALEZ IS NOT GOING TO BE FIRED!!!….

    THIS IS JUST A DISTRACTION….THE FINDINGS OF THE INVESTIGATION HAVE ALREADY BEEN AGREED ON…. CITY HALL JUST HAS TO MAKE THE PUBLIC THINK IT WAS AN HONEST INVESTIGATION.

    Wanna bet that the conclusion to the investigation finds “that no laws directly broken… that it was only a series of poor administrative decisions and miscommunication with council.”

    “And all the evidence will be sealed and deemed a confidential personnel matter.”

    FACT!! Mayor Oscar Leeser, City Representatives Cortney Niland, Emma Acosta, Michiel Noe, Larry Romero and Peter Svarzbein justified the $60,000 PAY RAISE, Gonzalez’s continues to ENJOY his $310,000 salary plus perks and benefits.

    BEWARE!!
    CITY COUNCIL REPRESENTATIVES WANT VOTERS TO APPROVE PAY RAISE FOR CITY COUNCILS PAYCHECKS.
