Led by City Manager Mike Cardenas, left, staff and elected officials of the City of Bandera bid farewell to Mayor Horst Pallaske during a get-together on Wednesday, May 23, at the municipal building.

Citing health reasons, Pallaske had resigned his position earlier this month and, during a meeting on Thursday, May 17, council accepted his resignation.

When apprised that, according to a local newspaper, the Texas Constitution allows a mayor who has resigned to continue serving in his official capacity until the next called election, an incredulous Pallaske asked, "Why would I want to do that? If I had been able to continue serving as mayor I would not have resigned in the first place."

City elections for mayor and two council seats will take place during the General Election on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
