At the end of Tuesday’s zoom meeting of the Sealy City Council, Mayor Janice Whitehead announced her resignation from the position.
“I am going to tender my resignation as mayor,” Whitehead said. “As of Sept. 16, I will no longer be residing within the city limits. However, I will stay on as a holdover mayor until another mayor is elected to the position.”
None of the council members could immediately comment on Whitehead’s statement and city attorney Tim Kirwin informed members of the council he would be in touch shortly thereafter.
Whitehead was sworn in to the city council in 2015 after winning the election by 11 votes over Jason Guilbeau. She took the mayor’s office after winning the 2017 election over Michael Kubricht.
