A former Bryan Police Chief ran for Mayor of Freeport, Texas but wasn't elected.
Ty Morrow resigned from the Bryan Police Department in 2009 following accusations that he abused his wife. He also called Bryan/College Station a racist community during a campaign speech that was recorded and put on YouTube.
He most recently retired as Chief of Police in Freeport after being relieved of duties by the Freeport City Council for undisclosed complaints. The Freeport City Manager tells us Morrow left before a full investigation was to begin.
After the votes were counted this weekend, Morrow commented on his campaign's Facebook page saying:
“The results are in Mayor Garcia won the election by 83 votes. The people of Freeport have spoken and their desires are for Mayor Garcia I want to wish her well.”
