Saint Jo mayor, 4B board members quit; mayor rescinds resignation, regrets outburst

Tempers flared at Wednesday night’s Saint Jo City Council meeting resulting in the resignation of Mayor Tom Weger and on the heels of the resignation of five members of the 4B Economic Development Board.
As anger calmed, Weger met with Mayor Pro Tem Carla Hennessey Thursday afternoon to discuss what’s next. While Weger resigned in the heat of the argument, the council had not accepted his resignation and he rescinded it Thursday.
The pair discussed what would be in the best interest of the city, and with his resignation not officially accepted, Weger is still mayor. After talking with the city attorney there were two options offered: Weger could submit a resignation letter for the council to consider at a called meeting on March 18 or he could meet with the council stating he rescinded the resignation and the members could undertake a confidence vote, which if there was a no-confidence vote could remove him from office if pursued.
The mayor said he does not plan to resign, so option two will be on the agenda. He added the mayor pro tem indicated she would like the rescinding action to be before the entire council.
Weger was quick to say his action Wednesday night was a “rant” and an “embarrassment,” which he apologizes for and that he should have handled things differently.

A search is planned Tuesday for Bryce Dingler, missing for almost one week.

The Clay County Sheriff’s office has organized the search where law enforcement will be using search dogs, a plane and drones to search specific areas in Clay County, along with deputies and paramedics walking the area in hopes of finding Bryce. The group will be small as to not throw off the search dogs. The focus will be in the area where Dingler’s truck was found last Wednesday.

The Nocona News Facebook page stated Monday evening: “At the request of Dr. Len Dingler, while everyone’s desires to help find their missing son Bryce are appreciated, the family asks you limit your support tomorrow to prayers and allow the professionals do their jobs, unhindered with extra untrained bodies and false footprints which could divert their efforts.” Bryce is Len’s son.
