Special Lubbock City Council Meeting Called to Discuss Complaints Against District 1 Councilman Victor Hernandez
A special Lubbock City Council meeting has been called to discuss complaints made against a councilman.
The special City Council meeting has been called for Thursday, April 4th at 3 p.m. to “Discuss, hear, and take action regarding complaints made against Councilman Victor Hernandez, District 1, including the possibility of retaining the services of a professional consultant for assistance in the completion thereof.”
Hernandez stated late Wednesday afternoon on his personal Facebook page that the complaints were related to his inquiries and open records requests regarding the City of Lubbock’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Audit for Fiscal Year 2011-2012.
Around noon Wednesday, Hernandez made a Facebook post regarding an open records request made by Mayor Glen Robertson for copies of all emails sent and received from Hernandez from May 15th, 2012 through the current date.
Robertson reportedly requested all emails “sent and received by Councilman Hernandez on the city server. Also all emails sent and received by Mr. Hernandez on his personal or business email account that are related to any City of Lubbock business,” according to Hernandez’s Facebook post.
The agenda for the meeting gives the Council the option to discuss the item both in executive session and open session.
