FLORESVILLE -- City Councilman Mario Morones has not resigned from his council seat, quashing rumors in the community to that effect.

Morones told the Wilson County News he received a phone call at approximately 9 a.m. Sept. 14 from Floresville City Secretary Margaret Aranda, advising she had received his resignation letter. Aranda asked if he had resigned, to which the councilman responded he had not, but that he would visit City Hall later to view the document in question.

Later that morning, Morones went to City Hall, accompanied by Floresville businessman Jim Miller and a reporter from this newspaper.

Aranda presented Morones with a photocopy of a letter and asked him if he had resigned. Morones said he had not, and asked for the original of the document she showed him. Aranda said the only document she had was another copy, which had been folded and left in her office.

Morones told the Wilson County News he had prepared a resignation letter prior to the council meeting scheduled for 10 a.m. Sept. 13, as he considered whether to remain in office. However, he decided not to resign and said the letter -- the only signed copy he had -- was torn into pieces and thrown into the trash. Morones said he did not know how Aranda came to be in possession of the copy she showed him.

Access to the city secretary’s office, as with all City Hall offices, is restricted. Only city employees and citizens who have been pre-screened in the front office are allowed into the area of the building where Aranda’s office is located.

The city secretary responded Friday afternoon to a phone call from the Wilson County News, stating she had no comment regarding the matter.

Is that why Margaret says if she goes down she is not going down alone, that she will take several people with her. What all does she have to say?
