Judge Rules in Favor of Texas Citizens AGAINST City Officials

Friendswood Mayor David Smith and attorneys representing the City of Friendswood argued last week that state law actually prevents people from being able to limit their local government when it comes to issuing debt. A bond attorney testified on behalf of the city of Friendswood that other cities in Texas – including Houston – have gone against their city charters to issue debt.

“’Because other cities do it’ is not a good enough argument for violating a city charter,” said Venable. “We hope that city leaders across the state take notice that they work for the taxpayers and are required to follow their city charter.”
