On July 15, League City City Council Member Larry Millican resigned from his Position 3 chair.

Millican told Community Impact Newspaper his departure is not related to health or anything negative but did not specify why he resigned.

“It’s time for me to explore other opportunities," he said. "I will talk later, but I don’t think right now is the right time to do that.”

On July 26, City Council will consider and take action on an item to order a special election to fill the remaining two years on Millican's term. The election would be held Nov. 8 with other elections in the Bay Area and across the nation, and a runoff election would be held Dec. 6, if necessary, according to a League City news release.

Millican spent six years attending League City City Council meetings as a resident before running and winning election to City Council in 2016. He was re-elected in 2020, he said.

"My love for League City has not changed," he said, noting he still lives in League City and will be around.

Not including Millican's open seat, five City Council positions are up for election Nov. 8, including the mayor position filled by Pat Hallisey, who will not run for re-election; Position 1 filled by Andy Mann; Position 2 filled by Hank Dugie; Position 6 filled by Chad Tressler; and Position 7 filled by Nick Long, who will run for mayor.

League City residents can file to run for these positions beginning at 7:30 a.m. July 25.
