Recently a request was made to the City of Rosenberg to have the City’s flag displayed at a fundraising event honoring the former Mayor of Rosenberg and benefiting the Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels program which is located in Rosenberg.
This simple request was made in the morning, however it took the city manager all day to respond to the request and to make the determination that it was inappropriate to allow the city flag to be utilized for this event.
This particular event was attended by Mayors from Richmond, Rosenberg, Missouri City, Stafford, and Sugar Land, along with other leadership from Fort Bend County and many citizens from Rosenberg. The American and Texas State flags were proudly displayed on the stage without any apparent discontent or concern to the State of Texas or the United States of America.
As a former long term resident of Rosenberg, a business operator in Rosenberg, and someone who spends financial and other personal resources for the betterment of Rosenberg, I was completely shocked and deeply concerned that the City Manager of Rosenberg felt it necessary to deny this simple request to have an important symbol of Rosenberg represented at an event that was meant to honor the past, present and future of Rosenberg.
No wonder so many people complain that the City of Rosenberg is so difficult to work with when the simplest of request are denied by the single individual who is most responsible for promoting a positive image of the city. Maybe the City Manager should reevaluate the rationale and appropriateness of some of his more “important” decisions.
