Speaking of Abdicating Lawful Responsiblities.. Judge Mike Ford Needs To Point a Finger At Himself

1 March 2013 at 3:33:16 PM

I laughed when I heard the audio of the 2 recent meetings (Somervell County is now putting the audio up on their website so you can HeAR the 2 special sessions concerning the hospital district - Feb 21 and 25)  concerning the election for a hospital district (which previous election was soundly and roundly defeated 2-1 a couple of years ago). Mr Ford pontificated that the only issue before the commissioners on Monday was not whether this was a good idea, but did the submitted petition meet legal criteria. Here is Mr. Ford lecturing the county commissioners.

MP3 audio - excerpt from February 25 2013 meeting.

Oh. So people in office can be removed for malfeasance of office when they don't follow the law. Hmmm. Would that we could have heard those words echoing in our ears a couple of years ago when Mr. Ford, then commissioner, broke the law for not having a mandatory public hearing on whether it is okay to take PUBLIC funds to loan to a PRIVATE organization. Now who the heck required that? The IRS. But Mr Ford was okay with breaking the law, despite then Judge Maynard's words about how the public should be able to decide whether they wanted to take on a 14.4 MILLION dollar obligation to give to PRIVATE Glen Rose Medical Center. Had we paid attention the way I'm sure all the commissioners did on Monday about their duty, then Mr. Ford would have been removed as commissioner and certainly would not be the judge now.
