HOUSTON (FOX 26) - This week's panel: Jared Woodfill - Republican lawyer and conservative activist, Nyanza Moore - progressive commentator and Houston attorney, Tony Diaz- Chicano educator and activist, Marcus Davis - host of "Sunday Morning Live", Bill King - businessman, columnist and former Kemah Mayor, and Jessica Colon - Republican strategist., join Greg Groogan to discuss the controversy at city hall and Mayor Turner's reactions.
City of Houston's Press Secretary Darian Ward today has submitted her resignation following her 2-week suspension.
Ward was suspended for two weeks without pay in December for failing to turn over thousands of public emails to a journalist who requested them.
The emails had to do with Ward's work on personal business projects while she was on the clock for the city and taxpayers.
"Darian Ward served the city as a key communicator for many years and has our thanks for working in public service," Mayor Sylvester Turner said. "I hope she is successful in her next endeavors."
Mayor Turner has appointed former reporter Mary Benton to serve as interim press secretary.
