This is some great gum shoe-ing! (I can’t take credit for it)
Last weeks League City City Council meeting spent almost 2 hours taking comments from 53 individuals against their book banning resolution. These individuals were required to sign in prior to the meeting and the video of the lobby shows them signing in.
There were 11 individuals who spoke in favor of the resolution but none of them are on the list to speak. None of them are in the video of the lobby prior to the meeting starting. So….how did Mayor Nick Long know who to call if their names were not on the list? Also the first to voice her oppositions knew beforehand what the others were going to say. It was clearly a coordinated event.
I would bet one of the Council members, after getting hammered by those who were against the resolution, sent a text to someone (Possibly Scott Bowen?) to round up the troops and voice some support of what they were doing. An Open Records request has been made for the list of the missing names yet League City has yet to respond. It’s easy to find the names since they were announced on the video of the meeting. That secret list was probably provided to the Mayor by Justin Hicks who sponsored the resolution. It really didn’t matter. Council was going to pass the resolution regardless of the outcry. It passed only by 4-3.
The list contains some extreme far right individuals including Scott Bowen, CCISD Trustee, Jeff Foxworth who leads the “I hate CCISD” group (or something like that). Also included at the end is Council Member Justin Hick’s wife. Was this illegal? Against City rules? Who knows. The missing 11 are below. I’m surprised that Christine Parizo didn’t shown up!
