Denise Bell regularly uses her bully platform, The Forney Post, to inform her reader of the enormous amount of wasteful spending by certain members of the Forney city council. In her latest hit piece, Forney City Council Puts the Cart Before the Horse…Again, she complains about the lack of “rocket scientists” on the current city council. Not sure why we need rocket scientists on the city council but “oh well”. Continue reading “I ain’t no Rocket Scientist but 62% is a lot”
On Saturday October 7th Rick Wilson held his monthly “coffee with the Mayor” at the Huddle House in Forney. Our friends at forneytexas.us posted the full uncut video on their Facebook page. I posted a link to that video on our Facebook page.
After viewing the entire video, Forney city council member Shaun Myers issued the following statement via a post on our Facebook page. Continue reading “Forney Council Member Shaun Myers Issues Statement ……..”
I received the September 2017 list of all open record request. There were 40 requests made and Denise Bell of The Forney Post was responsible for 21 of them (52%).
Many of Ms. Bells requests are just an attempt to create the perception that she is a “credible” source of news. However, her requests alone cost the city of Forney thousands of dollars each year in staff time and resources. Not to mention the aggravation that each staff member must endure each day when yet another Denise Bell request comes through.
Pay particular attention to request 38. In this request she wants city staff to “research” the Trinity Street project and provide her with the information they uncover when she asks, “Exactly when was the funding approved and the project started?” And again, when she asks, “How much will the final bill come to for the Trinity Street project?” It is not the job of city staff to research for her. She is entitled to request documents only and the city is required to provide them.
Many of her other requests are nothing more than fishing. She is trying to manufacture a story to support her and her follower’s agenda.

In a recent article by local blogger Denise Bell titled “Forney Residents Set Up to Pay for High Point Water Infrastructure”, Rick Wilson is quoted as saying,
“There is $1.5 million dollars for water infrastructure that’s been diverted to High Point Water district. So you are paying $1.5 million dollars, if we reimburse that money for High Point which is outside the city limits.”
I received a copy of the public information requests that were sent to the City of Forney for the month of July 2017. There were a total of 44 requests submitted. Of those 44 requests local blogger Denise Bell submitted 20 – 45% of them. Continue reading “July 2017 City of Forney Public Information Requests”
Last Tuesday evening I attended the Forney city council meeting where (6) members voted to release a report by the City Attorney which dispelled a statement by Mayor Rick Wilson that there was an “illegal meeting” on June 6th, 2017. Also at that meeting, by unanimous vote, the council members decided to move the “public communication” portion of the meeting from the end to the beginning of the meeting.
