BAYOU VISTA — Citing the recent death of his mother, Mayor Bobby Rosenquist resigned from office Monday night. The mayor had already been spending a lot of time out of state as his mother battled liver disease until she died last month.
“With my work schedule, family and city responsibilities, it’s been a very hectic time,” Rosenquist wrote. “As a result, I have relied heavily on Mayor Pro Tem Vaun Henry this past month to take care of the city business so I could handle family issues in North Carolina. Unfortunately, with this new turn of events, this does not look like things will change, and I will be in North Carolina for the better part of the next few months handling my mother’s estate.”
