Corruption and bigotry have no place in Mesquite

We support the Mesquite citizens and members of our organization who have filed Public Information Act requests today, February 1, 2021 with the City of Mesquite related to Councilmember conversations. The East Dallas County Democrats believe in equality for all and transparency in local government. Residents of Mesquite approached us with concerns of intimidation, corruption, and disparaging comments against minority residents. This type of representation has no place in Mesquite regardless of any person’s party affiliation. We hope the City of Mesquite and the Mesquite City Council show that they share our dedication to transparency in local government by promptly fulfilling their citizen’s request.

The importance of this issue cannot be stressed enough. The FBI has declared North Texas as having one of the largest concentrations of white supremacy groups and terrorism threats in our country. Investigations still ensue against the insurrection of the United States Capitol last month. It is imperative that we fully investigate any claims of racial prejudice and corruption in our city to confirm that they have not seeped into our local government. We look forward to ensuring this with a timely and thorough response to the requests filed today.
