Ward Declines to Accept Council Seat

City Secretary Lacy Borgeson accepted a letter from Mr. Bryant Ward this morning declining to accept the office of City of Temple Councilmember District Two. He was to take the oath of office for this seat in May of this year. His letter stated that his reason for declination of the seat is personal and he will not be able to carry out the duties of councilmember at this time.

Borgeson stated that this will result in the City of Temple calling a special election to fill this vacancy. It is anticipated that additional information will be available at a Special Called Meeting of the City Council on Wednesday, April 12th.
