Councilor Isaac Davila’s recent letter and his bizarre labeling of Fort Bend Pets Alive! as a “radical” and “harassing” group is not only a sad bullying tactic, it is an outrageous and misleading lie.
Davila met with us privately and publicly several times during his campaign and was very friendly and supportive of our no kill mission in Rosenberg.
Once on council, his voting pattern suddenly turned against the animals: He voted to remove all no kill advocates from the advisory board without asking any questions or investigating.
He still refuses to reappoint them.
Due to this, his prior endorsement with Fort Bend Voters for Companion Animals was retracted.
Only then did he start the rampage you are now witnessing.
I want to be clear that these are two separate animal advocacy groups, yet Davila loves to lump all of us together in his senseless attacks.
Furthermore, why does he seem to think concerned citizens speaking at city council meetings is “harassment”?
If public engagement is such a nuisance to him, why did he run for office last year and aspire to be mayor this year?
Lastly, I want to emphasize that all nonprofits work with politicians in different capacities to advance their cause, and of course those nonprofits support the politicians who support them.
It is one way to bring about real and effective change that lasts. What’s so wrong with that?
