On Monday, March 9, San Marcos City Council Member, Dr. Joca Marquez tendered her written resignation to the City Clerk’s office.  Dr. Marquez has held the Place 5 seat since December 2018.  She was elected for a three-year term.

Per her written letter, Dr. Marquez explains, “I am resigning at this time because my employment plans will require me to move my residence to a location outside the City of San Marcos.”

The City is coordinating details to fill the vacancy resulting from the resignation and will provide election information once it has been finalized.  Per the Texas Constitution, a resigning council member continues to hold over in office until a successor is elected and sworn in.
