Rona Stringfellow

Allegedly Lancaster paid her over $300k+, but she chose to “retire,” likely because she was stealing money from the city. Wilmer picked her up for $130K+, and now she’s coasting the city into multiple lawsuits.

Wilmer Illegally annexed land owners in 2008…

The City of Wilmer attempted to illegally annex 25+ land owners in 2008, likely with ill advice from counsel (Michael Halla worked for the city during 2008 and currently in 2023). They were immediately challenged in court and played tireless games to exhaust the plaintiff, Carol Estes, who prevailed and won against the city. Michael Halla and Jeff Steele’s plan failed, but they could annex the landowners that did not fight/sue the city. They’re likely praying on the poor to advance their agenda, selling out Wilmer to Corporations looking to build.
The common denomination seems to be Jeff Steele and Michael Halla, who have a grip on power, and they know if either party loses their position, the playbook allegedly falls apart for the large industrial projects around town and the money may stop flowing into the pockets of people who may have the inside information for the last 10-15 years.

The corruption is evident when the City Council of Wilmer sues Jeff Steele for withholding the agenda. You can see someone does not like when things don’t go his way

Fast forward to 2022: The City of Wilmer did it again! Illegally annexing over 150+ Landowners.

You heard skippy right. The City of Wilmer thought it would be wise, under the same leadership as in 2008, Jeff Steele and Michael Manslaughter Halla, to annex 150+ innocent landowners without any notice. No letter, no new papers publishing, no attempt to notify the land owners living in the county around Wilmer all their life. A whistle-blower is the one who told all the landowners affected on the list Wilmer published on their online agenda. Some residents reached out concerned, even crying because they’re afraid they won’t afford the additional taxes imposed by the City of Wilmer.

Watch this Youtube video. During the 1st attempt to illegally annex land owners, a lawyer representing a few of the owners was able to STOP the illegal annexation. UNFORTUNATELY, the city annexed the landowners who could not act fast enough. They only had 48 hours to retain an attorney because Wilmer thought being sneaky was the American way.

The City of Wilmer Attorney charged with manslaughter…

Shortly after attempting (2) of these illegal annexation attempts in 2022, Michael Halla was charged with manslaughter for striking two on the way to a city of Feris council meeting, allegedly going 80+ MPH based on cell phone data. Crazy. And the fact the City of Wilmer continues to contract him. He should be suspended immediately and wait until the charges are finalized… Halla likely is in a dire financial position, requiring funds to pay for his manslaughter charges, so allegedly milking the city and ill advising them allows him to cashflow his attorney bills.

Mugshot was taken Jan 2023 of Michael Boice Halla

Michael Halla was publically REPRIMANDED by Texas law investigatory panel in September 2022

Michael isn’t one to follow the law as much as you might think.. in 2022, the State of Texas Bar Association reprimanded him for trying to share attorney fees with a non-attorney.

See the link here for the fully executed judgment against Michael Boice Halla <—————– Link

Michael Halla is believed to be hanging on by a thread. He is known to kiss up to his fellow employees to ensure he remains in power. He allegedly accepts kickbacks with Jeff Steele over 12+ years running the town. Michael Boice Halla is known to have a losing record. When fighting important cases, you don’t want a losing attorney as city representation, let alone a personal case. He has lost three or more lawsuits for the City of Wilmer and continues to mislead council members and staff in the direction that best fits the agenda allegedly.

Update: Michael Boice Halla lost against EDD RD RV PARK LLC attorney Art Anderson at Winstead PC. on 1-30-2024 The 192nd court validated EDD RD RV PARK LLC’s position confirming they were illegally annexed by the City of Wilmer’s historical.

City Officials sue a private citizen for defamation and lose.

The story continues to get better! Your favorite incompetent city officials, Jeff Steele, Rona Crackfellow, Shiela Petta, Candi Madigral, and Manslaughter Michael Halla, all teamed up to sue Heran Patel in his private capacity as a citizen for Defamation. Unfortunately, they must have listened to the fast-talking Michael Halla for advice because it didn’t go too well for Jeff and Shiela Petta. Rona Stringfellow and Candi Madigral dropped out of the suit before losing to Heran Patel on 12-11-2023 under the Texas TCPA Motion to Dismiss. Now, the city officials owe Heran Patel $16,000 for wasting his time. Pretty soon, they’ll owe over $2,000,000 in damages and attorney fees related to other cases these city officials decided to get themself into.
