What If the Mayor Calls It Quits?

Corpus Christi, Front Page, Government and Politics

     In light of Monday’s events, it is unclear if Corpus Christi Mayor Dan McQueen will be leading the council today. More importantly, will he continue to be the mayor?  According to the January 16, 2017, Caller-Times article, there is no indication from other council members that McQueen is resigning his post.  But, what if he did?

        If Mayor McQueen remains in office, but the Council decides that his actions warrant removal from office, then City Charter Article 2, Section 11 comes into play.  It reads:

Retired from education after serving 30 years (twenty-eight as an English teacher and two years as a new-teacher mentor), Shirley enjoys her life with family and friends while serving her community, church, and school in Corpus Christi, Texas. She is the creator and managing editor of The Paper Trail, an online news/blog site that serves to offer new, in-depth, and insightful responses to the events of the day.
