Dan Hall

Ward II City Councilor Dan Hall has withdrawn his application to run again for his seat, and resigned from the council effective immediately, according to him.

“I have missed out on several things with my family over the last eight years,” Hall, who has also resigned from all the boards on which he served, said today. “My youngest son has two years left of high school, and I want to be more active with him.”

Hall is also the chief of police at Muskogee Public Schools.

“It was a hard decision, but I feel good about where I am leaving things,” he said. “It was just time for me.”

Local businessman Alex Reynolds is the only candidate for Hall’s seat and will become a city councilman by default with Hall’s absence.

Patrick Cale

Another city councilman, Patrick Cale, is also expected to resign today, according to numerous sources, though Cale has not yet returned texts asking for comment.

Stephanie Morgan or David Ragsdale Jr. will fill that seat in Ward I.
