San Antonio Council Censures Councilman Marc Whyte for DWI Arrest

The council unanimously voted (10-0) to reprimand, but not remove, Councilman Whyte from his position. In response to the issue, Whyte admitted that his choice to drive that night was inappropriate.

Mayor Ron Nirenberg has decided to suspend Whyte from his committee assignments for the time being, but Whyte remains optimistic about resuming his work shortly. He expressed no judgment over the mayor’s decision, recognizing it as his prerogative.

After the council’s vote to censure Whyte, Mayor Nirenberg discussed the council’s future. He emphasized the need to concentrate on city business and praised the council’s response to the situation.
