The letter from Mr. Kreutinger was an unfair attack on Councilmember Gene James and Mayor Pro Tem Laura Ferguson.

The point that these two voted for parking restrictions on April 30, but “changed their minds” a month later, is actually an indication that they have residents’ interests in mind by recognizing that the parking restrictions were no longer necessary.

I applaud them both for stepping up, as more information about the virus became available, and advocated to remove the parking restrictions. It is Councilmembers Chris Hamm and Kathy Ward who should be apologizing to city staff, and city residents, for being unwilling to vote with the best interests of residents in mind.

I do agree with Mr. Kreutinger on one thing, and that’s urging city residents to vote in November. However, my guess is he’s likely not going to like the outcome.
