Flower Mound resident and former town councilmember Paul “Citizen” Stone recently announced that he filed 16 ethics violations with the Texas Ethics Commission against five citizens associated with the Flower Mound Cares petition group: Darlene Casey, Josh Morrissey, Ginger Simonson, Kris Wise, and Amy Yaeger.
Flower Mound Cares successfully submitted a petition with over 6,100 signatures on March 31 to town officials supporting a proposed ordinance that would put a 180-day moratorium on new centralized natural gas compression and produced water storage facilities.
Ginger Simonson issued this statement to The CTG last week, “On April 5th, I was notified that Mr. Paul Stone had filed an ethics complaint against me and four other people. To my knowledge, I do not recall ever meeting or speaking with Mr. Stone. I have been advised that it is premature for me to make a statement since it was/is not clear that a complaint has been filed against me. If I am both notified by the Texas Ethics Commission that a complaint has, in fact been filed against me, and I have been found to have intentionally violated any ethics laws, I will make a further statement.”
We caught up with Stone late last week to discuss his reasoning behind filing the complaints. Click below to listen to the interview.
