Petition to remove McCarty: Late Tuesday evening, Liberty County Attorney Matthew Poston filed a petition with the Liberty County District Clerks office asking for the removal of Mike McCarty from his currently held office as Liberty County Commissioner Precinct 1. The 42 page petition covers the recent trial in which Mike McCarty was found guilty of two charges of abuse of official capacity. The petition calls McCarty’s recent conviction factual grounds for removal quoting Texas law as saying criminal acts of abuse of official capacity are per se acts of “official misconduct” under the local government code. The petition as filed also addresses McCarty’s alleged abuse of purchasing statutes that led to a lawsuit against the county. The petition requests the temporary suspension of Mike McCarty and the appointment of someone to perform the duties of Precinct 1 commissioner with that suspension becoming permanent if a court finds in favor of the petition.

Clarification: This is to clarify yesterday’s report on the Dayton City Council’s Budget Amendment approval. To be clear, the reported $2 million added to the city’s public safety’s facilities project was not made because that project was over budget. Dayton Mayor Jeff Lambright stressed that money was already budgeted for the project, but had been held in a reserve account until it was needed. Dayton City Council’s approval of the budget amendment Monday just moved the $2 million to that part of the building budget to begin using it.
