Six City Leaders Resign in Bells

Posted: Updated:

BELLS, TX -- The mayor and five other city leaders have resigned from office in Bells, and City Hall is now closed until it all gets worked out.

Mayor Shirley Mullinex was just elected to the seat two weeks ago and has already resigned. She said she resigned to take care of her husband who's very ill. She wouldn't speak for the other five who resigned.

Bells residents say they're concerned. "Well it's upsetting to me and I just, you know, wish they could all work it out and get along and run the city as it should be," said Paula Walthall.

A city council meeting is scheduled for seven o'clock Tuesday night to address the issues.
