It appears the El Paso City Attorney has never shared with the Council and Mayor the settlement offer given last August by my attorney, Bill Aleshire. Some sworn statements and a few depositions about the process the city uses to collect Public Records, and the lawsuit is over. The city has already wasted $95,000 of our treasure fighting to hide Public Records. Please call the Mayor, City Representatives, and come to City Council every Tuesday until they agree to this most basic step. If we cannot access these government records, then we are powerless against corruption. Empower El Paso and please make those calls!!!

Steph, below is the “clarification” of the AG’s position on appeal. You may share this with anyone you so desire. Also, attached is the settlement offer we made to the City that they get sworn affidavits from the city officials that they have turned over the requested records and to pay about $2,000 in attorney fees.
Seeing the Council discussion yesterday, really makes me wonder if the Council has ever seen the information below and attached to this email.
