HOUSTON CITY COUNCIL MEMBER IRRITATED!

STARDIG: TURN OFF THE PHONES AND TAKE OFF THE DARK SHADES PLEASE!

I’m not sure exactly what has happened at City Hall but one Houston City Council member is irritated by what’s happening in chambers.

For the second time I’ve noticed Council member Branda Stardig has asked Mayor Annise Parker to get tough on people who disrupt or don’t follow city council etiquette rules.

Stardig made it clear Wednesday she wanted the Mayor to go after those who allow their phones to go off during the governmental meeting. Stardig also says she doesn’t want people coming into chambers with ponchos, dark shades or hats. She says it’s a safety issue for the council members and the general public.

Mayor Parker took note of Stardig’s complaint but also blamed members of the media for phones going off during council sessions.

I’m not sure what has happened to Stardig to make her so irritated at the City Council meetings. Do you know?
