Fact Checking – Illegal Meeting Comments by Rick Wilson, Email to City Attorney

In a recent Forney Post article Rick Wilson was quoted as saying, “I am fully convinced we had an illegal executive session based on those findings“.

In an effort to confirm the legality of the meeting in question I have sent City Attorney John Thatcher the following email…..

John –
In a recent Forney Post article Rick Wilson was quoted as saying “I am fully convinced we had an illegal executive session based on those findings”.
To my knowledge Rick Wilson is referring to the City Council meeting on June 6th, 2017 and he is specifically referring to the executive session portion of that meeting.
This assertion by Rick Wilson implies that all participants in that executive session were involved in an illegal meeting. That includes you and City Manager James Fisher. This statement by Rick Wilson is now being used as part of the basis for a recall election against Mary Penn and Robbie Powers.
To date there has been no statement by any City of Forney official supporting or refuting this statement. Therefore I am requesting that you provide me with any and all documents you may be in possession of that may support or refute this statement by Rick Wilson.
I am currently running the website www.factcheckforney.com and I want to have a statement to release on my website regarding this matter as I feel the citizens have a right to know if Rick Wilson is being truthful in his statements to them.
Respectfully;
Mike Thomas
I will post Mr Thatchers response as soon as I receive it.
