Beane called the events unfolding at city council an “absolute embarrassment” both for the city council and the city of Lubbock. He chastised the council for squabbling over personalities when there’s far more important work to be done on the council, and added that there was absolutely no need for any of this to get out in the open and that it should have been handled behind closed doors.

Let’s face it, right now the Lubbock City Council is busy majoring in minors when there’s a lot of work out there that really needs to be done. And it’s unbelievable to me that we have reached a low at City Hall to where it’s all about personalities.This new group at City Hall, they ran on a campaign of more harmony. And maybe it’s just me, but I’m not seeing it.

Beane had plenty to say on a number of different issues surrounding the conflict. He said it was “unheard of” for Councilman Victor Hernandez to not recuse himself during the deliberations, and that his playing an active role in the dismissing of complaints against him tainted the entire council’s decision. As for city manager Lee Ann Dumbauld, Beane said that even if she doesn’t lose her job over the whole ordeal, she still has the grounds to bring a massive harassment lawsuit against Hernandez.

Beane also added that it was not just limited to Hernandez and Dumbauld, and commented of Councilwoman Latrelle Joy’s involvement in the conflict. He also discussed the possibility of a recall of Hernandez, saying that it would be a much better option to simply find a new candidate and put him or her up against Hernandez come election time. Beane also answered several listeners’ questions about the events at city council.

You can listen to Paul Beane’s commentary, “The Way I See It,” weekdays at 1:30 during Rush Limbaugh on NewsTalk 790 KFYO.
