City Says Overstreet Documents Related to Corruption Investigation

New documents from the City of Lubbock state very clearly that the removal of Kevin Overstreet as Emergency Management Director is directly related to an Attorney General's investigation of corruption at City Hall.

Overstreet requested an investigation of three officials in late 2006, and so he claims his removal is retaliation. NewsChannel 11 first reported Overstreet's removal on December 3rd. Five days later, NewsChannel 11 made an open records request for e-mails or memos concerning the direction and/or future of emergency management. 

The city asks permission to withhold the documents for several reasons:

  • They might include e-mail addresses or phone numbers. 
  • They might be related to personnel issues, and
  • They might interfere with detection or investigation of crime. 

The city says in its December 23rd memo to the A.G.'s opinion committee, "In this case the information directly relates to an investigation being conducted by the Texas Attorney General's criminal justice division."
