Weatherford Citizens, I am ashamed at how our last Council Meeting turned out. The business of the people was not done. That is evident by Councilman Hamilton and Councilman Swancy’s behavior. They were only interested in appointing folks they wanted on boards. It was especially shameful by the difficult position it placed Mayor Hooks in as Chair of the Council.
My intent in making my recommendations of applicants to the various boards for appointment was to ensure all our applicants that had applied could be put on a board and particularly one they were interested in serving on.
This ran contrary to the methodology utilized by Councilman Swancy and Councilman Hamilton. Some folks who had applied for positions on our boards were not appointed because Councilman Hamilton and Councilman Swancey based their appointments on their personal likes versus qualifications for the position.
I offer up my sincere apologies to those applicants who had applied for positions on our boards and were not appointed due to the political circus that went on at City Hall. I can promise you that I will keep fighting for you to ensure the people’s work is done.
If you are as appalled as I am about how the business of the people was handled during our last Council Meeting, I encourage you to call City Hall at (817)598-4201 and let Councilman Hamilton and Councilman Swancy know how you feel.
