HOUSTON — A Houston Community College trustee on Thursday filed a complaint against a fellow trustee, claiming she lives outside of her district and that she should be reprimanded or censured by the HCC board.
Trustee Dave Wilson’s complaint against Trustee Adriana Tamez comes in the wake of an investigative report paid for by Wilson that showcased numerous public records that purport to demonstrate that Tamez lives in an Allen Parkway highrise, rather than a modest house on Houston’s Jefferson Street.
The highrise is in HCC’s District 8, rather than District 3, where Tamez says where she lives.
“The main reason I filed the complaint is because the people in District 3 don’t have any representation,” Wilson said. “They’re being taxed and they have no representation. I think we fought a revolution over that in one time in our history.”
Tamez did not return a call seeking comment.
Investigators also followed Tamez on three separate occasions and found her parking and staying at the Allen Parkway residence.
You can see the allegations in the Dolcefino Consulting report here:
If Ms. Tamez swore to false documents she should be removed from office. Out of respect for the voters of District 3, Tamez should step down if her representations are false. In any case, she should publicly address this issue, and whether falsification of this type of issue is disqualifying or should be reviewed by the Harris County District Attorney.
Wilson did not know what the reaction to his fellow trustees might be.
“It’s hard to say,” he said. “It depends on whether my fellow trustees want to do what’s right or want to be complicit in protecting a phony, fraudulent trustee.”
Wilson has had residency issues filed against him in the past, with county officials claiming he resided out of his district.
He won in court on the residency issues.
