South East Bexar County Awareness: Media covers the ESD6 Board Reappointment
County Commissioner Chico Rodriguez Continues to Pretend He Doesn't Know
A special thanks to Ksat12 and Ms. Molina for having the courage to do a story on a community south of the city of San Antonio in Bexar County.
The citizens of South Bexar County have limited funding to provide fire protection. The county commissioner's court rubber stamped the appointment of the board members that have created this dilemma by spending funds for projects other than fire safety and other items that are unknown as their bookkeeping has been less than stellar.
County Commissioner Rodriguez continues to play himself as being "out of the loop". However, there is documentation that shows that Commissioner Rodriguez and his staff were so far inside the loop he could not touch the rim.
The Community of South Bexar County has pooled their resources in acquiring documentation and have found that to date; Ms. Mendelsohn and County Commissioner Rodriguez have misrepresented themselves, not only to the South Bexar County community, but to the entire city of San Antonio by consistently giving inaccurate information to cover the fact that they were both in constant correspondence on the issues of the ESD6, through the ESD6's attorney, Mr. Louis T. Rosenberg.
The commissioner went on to say that the ESD reports to no one. It is apparent that the county commissioner has not completed his training for the commissioners court when it comes to board laws. If our elected official can work outside the governing law, than how can board members that he appoints be held accountable? How can one oversee a government entity that is required to handle large funds and the safety of an entire community, when he himself is not aware of the policies.
Ignorance of the law does not exonerate one from the guilt or the responsibility, but it creates hardship for those that fall under the lacking principle.
