Mechanical bull, swimsuit competition help Hallmark win contest to be appointed to Elkhart City Council
ELKHART, TX—Facing criticism for Elkhart City Council’s decision to appoint Carl Hallmark to serve as an interim councilmember instead of holding an election after the exit of Chris Bice, Mayor Mike Gordon is speaking out about how Hallmark won the position.
“Before anyone thinks this was some backroom, good ol’ boy arrangement, I put out a call to anyone who wanted to participate in the contest to be appointed to my council,” Gordon told The Dogwood Tale. “Carl was the only one that applied and like any other applicant would have been required to do, Carl came to my home and after completing various feats of strength blew me away with his mastering of the mechanical bull and his impressive body during the swimsuit competition.”
Gordon said that he knew without a single doubt that Hallmark had the impressive balls to do the job.
“This man will serve me, or us, I mean us, well.”
