Estes to speak today on future


The act states: “The governor shall remove all city officers chosen by the electors ... when the governor is satisfied from sufficient evidence submitted to the governor that the officer has been guilty of official misconduct, willful neglect of duty, extortion, or habitual drunkenness, or has been convicted of being drunk ... .”

Estes said he was not aware of the law and it does not affect his decision, which he declined to announce in advance.

“I will adhere to whatever the law says,” Estes said.

Should Estes be removed or opt to not accept the position as Mayor, the new city commission can either appoint a replacement, call for a special election, or appoint a temporary replacement until a special election is held.
