Uvalde Mayor Cody Smith Resigns Amidst Pressure to Address Robb Elementary School Massacre Failures: What Led to His Decision?

Uvalde, Texas’ former mayor Cody Smith has resigned from his position due to undisclosed health issues.

In a statement released on Monday, Smith expressed his gratitude to the Uvalde community for their support during his ongoing medical issues. He mentioned that it was an honor to serve the city he loves but has made the difficult decision to step down as mayor.

The timing of Smith’s resignation, just before a City Council meeting, has sparked speculation about its relation to the Robb Elementary shooting report. Parents of the victims, like Brett Cross, feel disheartened by the news and are seeking justice and accountability from city officials. The community is anxiously awaiting updates on the investigation and the steps being taken to prevent such tragedies in the future.
