Pawhuska City Councilwoman and Vice Mayor Cathy Worten has officially resigned from her positions during the last city council meeting following an alcohol-related car accident involving her husband, Jesse Worten III, who is Pawhuska’s city attorney.

Since 2010, Worten has maintained her Ward 2 position, and she formerly served as the At-Large councilor.

Worten has been absent at the last several city council meetings while her husband has been placed on an extended leave-of-absence since early July.

Bob Wilson has been appointed the acting city attorney while the council decides what will happen with Worten’s position status.
