ER #7

City Hall Elevator Rumblings #7

Rider #1: Do you think someone will file an Opens Records request to see which council members and city staff have been going to Cowboy games in the new stadium and sitting in the chamber’s suite that is indirectly funded by the city?

Rider #2: I wouldn’t worry. The CM has this covered better than a “Snuggie” on a chihuahua


Rider #1: How is that possible?

Rider #2: He’ll just use the old Billy Bob model of opaque transparency. The list of “invitees” is basically controlled by the chamber and the city cannot force them to disclose their internal affairs. Therefore, he can plead nolo contendre and check his calendar for an upcoming game.

A note from counsel: These “candid” elevator conversations have been injected with fabricated nouns, verbs, adjectives, conjunctions, adverbs, modifiers and maybe a few dangling participles….Mark Holbrook
