UPDATE: San Antonio City Council publicly reprimanded Councilman Clayton Perry Monday, November 14, with a vote of no confidence after a hit-and-run while allegedly driving while intoxicated. City Council also granted a leave of absence for Perry to seek rehabilitation. Council members removed a call for Perry’s resignation from the original text of the vote, acknowledging public comment from constituents saying it wasn’t the City Council’s right.
The City Council also removed a section from the resolution saying that he was unapologetic, with Councilman Manny Pelaez referring to a press conference Perry held earlier Monday apologizing to his staff, his constituents, and the people in the vehicle Perry allegedly crashed into. The motion was approved 8-1 with Mayor Ron Nirenberg voting against. Perry and Councilman Jalen McKee-Rodriguez abstained.
