Former Councilman Ken Wilkerson resigned on May 15 when he sent an email to Killeen City Manager Kent Cagle. However, the public and Killeen City Council themselves were not made aware of the mayor pro tem’s resignation until two days later, on Wednesday, May 17.

Wilkerson did not attend last Tuesday night’s council meeting, in which he was replaced as the city’s mayor pro tem by Councilwoman Nina Cobb.

WHAT...DOES...this mayor...DO? She allows the City Manager to relegate her and the city council to be spectators in their own government. Ask her a question about HER job / role / position - she'll tell you that you have to ask someone else.

This is the City of Killeen, NOT "Cagleburg". Leander had the good sense to fire him, and this crowd hires him enthusiastically. Worse, there are people in this town that will tell you Cagle is the "best city manager that we have EVER had". Oh? Based upon WHAT...exactly?

It is high time for her and the City Manager to go.
