    Cypress City council votes to censure Frances Marquez

    For the first time in its 66-year history, the Cypress City Council has voted to censure a member of its council.  In a 4-1 vote Monday evening, the Cypress City Council censured Councilwoman Frances Marquez — criticizing her for, among other matters, “failing to respond to Public Records Act requests in a timely manner.”   For the council’s steadfast majority, the third time was a charm. Twice this year already, the council had weighed whether to censure Marquez.   Local reporter Susan Goulding has the story for the OC Register.
