Ex Colorado City mayor catching heat for comments about citizens affected by cold.
COLORADO CITY, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) â The now former mayor of Colorado City is catching some heat after a social media post berating citizens affected by the cold.
In a Facebook post made Tuesday morning, Tim Boyd wrote that it is ânot the local governmentâs responsibility to support you during trying times like this! Sink or swim, itâs your choice!â
Addressing power outages, Boyd writes, âThe City and County, along with power providers or any other service owes you NOTHING! Iâm sick and tired of people looking for a damn handout!â
âOnly the strong will survive and the weak will parish (sic),â Boyd continues.
Boyd made another social media post later Tuesday afternoon saying he âwonât deny for one minuteâ what he said in the post, and that many of the things he wrote were âtaken out of context.â
In the same post, Boyd writes that he had already turned in his resignation, although it is unclear if he did so before or after writing the initial Facebook post.
Calls made to Boyd were not immediately returned.
