Hercules councilwoman faces possible censure

HERCULES, Calif.

Our media partner the Contra Costa Times reports that Hercules Councilwoman Myrna de Vera is in hot water with fellow councilmembers for silencing a resident over blog posts that she believed was critical of her.

The council will consider a draft resolution accusing de Vera of interfering "in a premeditated, arbitrary and conspiring manner."

Over the summer, the councilwoman allegedly pressured a Pinole city engineer to stop a Hercules resident from blogging about her.
