San Angelo City Councilwoman challenged the draft minutes from the last council meeting. She stated:
In the minutes concerning the discussion of light and heavy manufacturing I made no remark about talks of a partnership.
The tape shows Councilwoman Grindstaff saying on October 21, 2014:
My company has no relationship with Mr. Pfluger other than the requirement to provide transportation services to and from his site. There has been some talk of a partnership. That has gone nowhere with our management. So, at this time we're, we have the obligation to Mr. Pfluger as we do to any other developer on the rail to provide transportation as we are part of the national transportation network."It's surreal when leaders say they did not use words that exist on tape or in e-mails.
