Prior to council meetings, council members are provided with background material to help them prepare for the upcoming meeting.  After Mayor Robertson was elected, he talked on KFYO about the importance of council members being ready for meetings.  But on the Friday edition of Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, the mayor suggested, without naming names, that some council members were going to meetings unprepared.

Later, as the program was coming to an end, the topic came up again, and the mayor was asked to name names.

"I think that when Mr. Klein comes to council and is asking questions that are already in his back-up, that possibly he’s not prepared," Robertson said. " " I think when Mr. Hernandez does the same thing, perhaps he’s not prepared."
