South Padre Island Mayor Dennis Stahl has announced his resignation, effective May of this year.
Stahl announced his departure in an email sent to the PRESS Wednesday evening, writing that he had submitted a letter of resignation with City Secretary Susan Hill earlier in the day.
Stahl cited health concerns as his reason for resigning. “What began as a ‘ten hour per week’ volunteer position to improve the island has now become an (all-consuming) mayoral position. My health will no longer allow me to work the schedule needed to sustain success,” Stahl wrote in his letter.
“I am reprioritizing what is most important in my life: personal physical health, my wife, and family,” he wrote.
