The seat of former City Councilman David White is currently vacant.

 

Poteau, Oklahoma - At the Monday evening (Feb 5, 2018) Poteau City Council meeting, the council voted to officially vacate the seat of Councilman in Ward 3, David White.


The dismal is due to missing the allotted number of absences allowed a councilman in a four-month period.


White was recently indicted on federal drug charges in California.


The charges stem from a year and a half long investigation in which White was federally indicted in the U.S. District Court in Muskogee for drug conspiracy and distribution of methamphetamine.


The council voted to hold a special election to fill the vacant seat.


The special election will likely take place in June.
