“If Richard hadn't resigned, Larry would have had to ask him to leave”

NORTH RICHLAND HILLS -- Assistant City Manager Richard Torres has resigned after a judge placed him on six months' probation for making terroristic threats against two teenagers at his home last fall.

City Manager Larry Cunningham said he accepted Torres' letter of resignation Monday. Cunningham said that the resignation was Torres' idea and that Torres did not discuss his plans. Torres did not immediately return a phone call Tuesday.

Torres' resignation is effective April 20, and his last day on the job will be April 13 with the rest taken as vacation, Cunningham said. He received an annual salary of $126,500, city spokeswoman Mary Edwards said. Read more

<quoted text> Very funny tim, very funny and I must say what a stupid thing you did by coming down here to texas way back in the spring during storm season. I,am willing to gamble you got caught up in some very bad storms at one point. Sometimes I chase those nasty storms and replay it to the weather so sadly enough I have to save some people,s lifes by that but there are some people in this wrold that probly don,t deserve to be warned when servere weather is coming so tim you know what i did? There was a rude baseball team with a church group playing in our city park feild when they were told that the feild was open. Since they were so rude I was alerted that a bad storm was headed this way with 8o mile per=hour winds, yeaaa it didn,t look bad and the storm was just minutes away and since they were acting so hatefull and rude and pitfull I thought, yeaaaa I will not even warn them about and just took off myself and no the situration was not life threatning by all means after all I assume the ended up in the restooms sooner are later. Like I said there are certain people in this wrold that deserve to be fully mistreated. Now don,t get me wrong I ,am not a person to harm are wish bad harm to no=one but when it comes to helping them in a non life threatning situration I just usually don,t help them. Such as you broke down on the side of the road on your scooter. I would probly get a good laugh tim.
john you so full of yourself. I came down there on a bicycle. Your storms are like you. Wussy's. Now shut up troll and go find a sheep.
