Pete Arredondo was sworn into his city council position just 6 days after the Robb Elementary School shooting. Now, he’s resigning from the position amongst intense backlash.

The tragic shooting at Robb Elementary occurred on May 24 resulting in the deaths of 19 children and 2 teachers. On May 31, Pete Arredondo, the bumbling police chief who stopped officers from saving those children, was sworn into the Uvalde city council.

He’s finally made a good decision and will resign from the city council.

“After much consideration, I regret to inform those who voted for me that I have decided to step down as a member of the city council for District 3. The mayor, the city council, and the city staff must continue to move forward without distractions. I feel this is the best decision for Uvalde,” Arredondo told Uvalde Leader-News.

“As we continue to grieve over the tragedy that occurred on May 24th, we pray for the families involved and our community,” Arredondo told the local newspaper. “Uvalde has a rich history of loving and supporting thy neighbor and we must continue to do so. In speaking with other communities that have had similar tragedies, the guidance has been the same… continue to support the families, continue to support our community, and definitely, to keep our faith.”

“The only thing stopping a hallway of dedicated officers from entering rooms 111 and 112 was the on-scene commander who decided to place the lives of officers before the lives of children,” Texas DPS Director Steve McCraw told a special Texas Senate committee about Uvalde Consolidated ISD Police Chief Pete Arrendondo.

That on-scene commander was Pete Arredondo who still swears that he was not in charge that day.

“I just need a key; tell them to f–king wait. No one comes in,” Arredondo said, according to the video transcript McCraw was reading from.

Arrendondo had not attended any City Council meetings since he was sworn in.

The council convened on June 21 to discuss Arrendondo’s request for a leave of absence, which it ultimately denied, according to the New York Times. Several residents approached the podium at the meeting and called for the chief to step down.
