Mayor of Celina resigns
Celina Mayor Jim Lewis resigned Thursday morning with more than a year left on his current three-year term.
Celina Town Council member and Mayor Pro tem Todd McCally will serve as mayor until a special election is held within the next 120 days to name who will fill the remainder of Lewis' term.
Lewis recently sold his house in Celina, which has been on the market for several months, and no longer resides within the city. He turned in a letter of resignation effective immediately. The move didn't come as a surprise to McCally and the rest of city leadership, who had been informed of the mayor's intent to resign.
"We're certainly going to miss his passion," McCally said. "We're going to miss his guidance and the leadership that he has provided for the past decade plus for the citizens of Celina. We hope that he stops in and visits us."
