SULPHUR, Okla. (KTEN) — The Sulphur City Council voted Monday to extend the contract of City Attorney Les Wessberry.

Some residents raised concerns about Wessberry during the special meeting.

In September, three council members issued a statement saying he "failed to perform his duties as required by the attorney general."

According to reports, two petitions were filed against two parties of council members, one being councilman Alan McKay. Wessberry is said to have defended the two parties unequally.

"For them to make this statement and not hold him accountable for the citizens of Sulphur, there needs to be some answers here for us," said resident Tara Mullins. "Les was very partial towards one of the petitions over the other, and he did not defend the city equally, like he should have,"

But Wessberry maintained that a court ruled the petition filed as a result of this statement was insufficient.

"He made compelling arguments tonight in regards to why it went the way it went," said Ward 2 council member Derrick Stone.

In the end, the Sulphur City Council voted 3-2 to extend Wessberry's contract.
