Texas mayor who told residents city owed them ‘NOTHING’ amid outages and record cold resigns

The mayor of a small Texas town who told residents they were owed “NOTHING” as many went without power or heat during a deadly cold snap has resigned.

“No one owes you [or] your family anything,” Tim Boyd, the mayor of Colorado City, Texas wrote Tuesday in a since-deleted Facebook post. “I’m sick and tired of people looking for a damn handout!”

“The City and County, along with power providers or any other service owes you NOTHING!” he said while urging residents to “step up and come up with a game plan” for acquiring power or heat.

“Only the strong will survive and the weak will [perish],” he added.
