Cobb resigned over personal reasons, and in part, due to insults and poor behavior from a number of people with whom Cobb has had disagreement, according to a Sept. 22 Facebook post from Bee Cave Mayor Kara King.
“Our society doesn’t respect difference of opinion,” King stated in her post on the social media platform. “Elected officials are taking it particularly hard right now. From councils, to statewide offices and especially school board members, the attacks are vicious.”
Cobb was first elected to the Bee Cave City Council in 2018 and was reelected in 2020, according to his online biography posted on the Bee Cave website.
However, this is not the first time that Cobb has resigned from the city council. He did so in March 2020 amid a dispute with former Bee Cave Mayor Bill Goodwin, who resigned as mayor at the same meeting Cobb submitted his resignation. The city has an ongoing legal dispute with Goodwin regarding his status as city council member.
