The Walls Board of Aldermen Tuesday night officially accepted former mayor Gene Alday’s resignation.
Alday, 54, had to resign from the job he held for six years after winning the state House seat in District 25 in the Nov. 8 general election.
Walls Deputy Mayor Lynda Austin will assume duties as mayor until a special election is held on Feb. 6. Austin said at that time, she plans to run for mayor.
