Colorado City mayor resigns, responds to his controversial Facebook post

COLORADO CITY, Texas — Colorado City Mayor Tom Boyd has resigned.

Boyd acknowledged the resignation Tuesday afternoon while responding to criticism he received for a controversial Facebook post.

Tuesday morning, Boyd voiced his frustrations about residents who he said called him to complain about power and water outages.

"If you don’t have electricity, you step up and come up with a game plan to keep your family warm and safe," Boyd said. "Get off your ass and take care of your own family!"

Tuesday afternoon, Boyd posted another message.

"I would never want to hurt the elderly or anyone that is in true need of help to be left to fend for themselves," said Boyd. "I was only making the statement that those folks that are too lazy to get up and fend for themselves but are capable should not be dealt a handout. I apologize for the wording and some of the phrases that were used!"

Boyd said he had already turned in his resignation and did not file a ballot application to run in May.

"Please understand, if I had it to do over again, I would have just kept my words to myself and if I did say them I would have used better wording and been more descriptive," said Boyd.

No one owes you or your family anything; nor is it the local governments responsibility to support you during trying times like this! Sink or swim, it’s your choice! The City and County, along with power providers or any other service owes you NOTHING! I’m sick and tired of people looking for a damn hand out! If you don’t have electricity you step up and come up with a game plan to keep your family warm and safe. If you have no water you deal with out and think outside of the box to survive and supply water to your family. If you were sitting at home in the cold because you have no power and are sitting there waiting for someone to come rescue you because your lazy is direct result of your raising! Only the strong will survive and the week will perish. Folks, God Has given us the tools to support ourselves in times like this. This is sadly a product of a socialist government where they feed people to believe that the FEW work and others will become dependent for handouts. Am I sorry that you have been dealing without electricity and water; yes! But I’ll be damned if I’m going to provide for anyone that is capable of doing it themselves! We have lost sight of those in need and those that take advantage of the system and mesh them into one group!! Bottom line, quit crying and looking for a handout! Get off your ass and take care of your own family!

Bottom line - DON’T BE A PART OF A PROBLEM, BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION!

All, I have set back and watched all this escalating and have tried to keep my mouth shut! I won’t deny for one minute what I said in my post this morning. Believe me when I say that many of the things I said were taken out of context and some of which were said without putting much thought in to it. I would never want to hurt the elderly or anyone that is in true need of help to be left to fend for themselves. I was only making the statement that those folks that are too lazy to get up and fend for themselves but are capable should not be dealt a handout. I apologize for the wording and some of the phrases that were used! I had already turned in my resignation and had not signed up to run for mayor again on the deadline that was February 12th! I spoke some of this out of the anger that the city and county was catching for situations which were out of their control. Please understand if I had it to do over again I would have just kept my words to myself and if I did say them I would have used better wording and been more descriptive.

The anger and harassment you have caused my wife and family is so undeserved....my wife was laid off of her job based off the association people gave to her and the business she worked for. She’s a very good person and was only defending me! But her to have to get fired from her job over things I said out of context is so horrible. I admit, there are things that are said all the time that I don’t agree with; but I would never harass you or your family to the point that they would lose there livelihood such as a form of income.

I ask that you each understand I never meant to speak for the city of Colorado City or Mitchell county! I was speaking as a citizen as I am NOT THE MAYOR anymore. I apologize for the wording and ask that you please not harass myself or my family anymore!

Threatening our lives with comments and messages is a horrible thing to have to wonder about. I won’t share any of those messages from those names as I feel they know who they are and hope after they see this they will retract the hateful things they have said!

Thank you

Tim Boyd(citizen)

This is nothing but the collateral damage from racism. republican = racist. These days, patriot = racist.

All the code words they use come down to the same thing, racism. It's literally a black and white issue, there is no grey area. These motherfuckers are so indoctrinated in their hatred they are willing to actually kill themselves rather than acknowledge at least the equality of Black people.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, the most dangerous thing tRump and his handlers started was their campaign against the media. That campaign has been continued and amplified by his cohorts and faux news and it is dangerous beyond measure. Without a free press, we are totally fucked.

WHO WOULD OF EVER THOUGHT IT WOULD SNOW IN TEXAS AND BE AS COLD AS IT WAS?THEY WEREN'T READY FOR IT .....IT'S NOT LIKE A HURRICANE OR NOTHING.
This is what crony capitalism looks like. I'd be willing to bet the people who put up the windmills overestimated and left out the crucial materials, because they have a friend in politics that granted them the job.

Its been said that they were warned years ago that this would happen because the equipment hadn't been winterized. And of course with them being Republicans, they ignored it.

Bottom line...chickens coming home to roost.
Texans be like.." Move to Texas , we ain't got no taxes cause we ain't got no infrastructure....yuk,yuk. ..yeehaw"..
Just wait until all of those new transplants start sucking up resources.. :giggle:
most of the caliexit were magats undercover, yes taxes is bad but alot of them wanted to live in conservative utopia spurned on by Trump and their underlying hatred of POC and lockdown restrictions, i say give it 2 years tops !!
