This morning the communications staff refused to answer any questions about the change. They were totally intransigent and bureaucratically insolent.“September 29, 2017
Today I was instructed by Laura Hinojosa, Senior Administrative Assistant to the Director, to find a link on the Communication Department’s web page, which would direct me to the Legal Department, to request information under the Texas Open Meetings Act.
