Tim Boyd Biography
Tim Boyd, mayor of the Colorado city, 220 miles west of Fort Worth, expressed his frustration at the city’s 4,000 residents on Facebook.
‘Nobody owes you anything, you are your family; It is also not the responsibility of the local government to support you in difficult times like this! ‘he wrote on Tuesday morning.
‘The City and County, along with the energy providers or any other service, owe you NOTHING!’
Data from Oncor Electric Delivery, which serves about 4,400 customers in the Colorado city zip code, showed 1,304 of them were without power as of 9 p.m. Tuesday. The temperature was 23 degrees.
Boyd went on at length, saying that he was “sick and tired” of people seeking handouts and that the current situation is “sadly a product of a socialist government.

The former mayor said his family had been harassed as a result of his position and that his wife had lost her job.
“Please understand that if I had to do it again, I would have kept my words to myself and if I had said them I would have used better wording and it would have been more descriptive,” he wrote.
“The anger and harassment they have caused my wife and family is undeserved… my wife was fired from her job because of the association that people gave her and the business she worked for. She is a very good person and she was just defending me!
‘But having to get fired from her job for things I said out of context is so horrible. I admit it, there are things that are said all the time with which I do not agree; but it would never harass you or your family to the point of losing your livelihood, as a form of income.
Boyd also claimed that he had resigned before taking office Tuesday morning and that he was speaking only as a citizen, not as an elected official.
‘He had already submitted my resignation and had not signed up to run for mayor again by the deadline which was February 12!’ he said.
