Nacogdoches City Commissioners Table Cartwright Issue

Nacogdoches city commissioners have agreed to table the issue concerning the nonpayment of medical expenses from city commissioner Mary Cartwright. City Manager Jim Jeffers tells us the commissioners will take a look at the total medical expenses for Cartwright.

Jeffers says Cartwright received an insurance check for $5,000 after falling during a business trip in 2002. She was given a year to pay back $1,400 to the city.

Cartwright has now agreed to pay a portion of the city's expenses, knowing those expenses were well over the $5,000 she received from the insurance company. A commissioner indebted to the city could be convicted of a misdemeanor and be removed from office.
