City issues warning, cancels public comment

LAREDO MORNING TIMES
A discussion of insurance issues related to El Metro ended with three council members leaving the room and Mayor Raul Salinas preventing the public from commenting on the issue for fear of possibly disrupting an ongoing legal investigation.
City hall delivers the drama as some councilmen stage a walkout because of some sensitive issue going on with our transit provider where something may or may not have gone down, and the police is looking into something, I'm not sure, but it doesn't look good, but I wouldn't be able to tell if it's bad because this is just another day in council chambers, so who can really tell?
I do like the comment that our adorable mayor made:
I took an oath of office a long time ago to protect the integrity of investigationsIs he trying to tell us again that he was an FBI agent once?
What's with the earnest proclamation? "I took an oath of office....." You signed a confidentiality statement, just like a lot of people do; get over yourself!
"I took an oath of office." How 'bout taking an oath to tell your council about pending litigation so they won't be in the dark and walk out in the middle of a city council meeting?
It must be tough to be mayor. It can't always be happy happy, jolly jolly.
