TAFT (Kiii News) -

Roxann Cotroneo, the woman who was initially hired to be the city attorney of Corpus Christi, has taken the job of city attorney of Taft, Texas.

Earlier this year, Cotroneo was confirmed to replace the retiring Carlos Valdez as city attorney. However, she was accused in an anonymous email of making statements that were racially insensitive, sexist and in violation of city rules and procedures.

After investigating the accusations made against Cotroneo, the City determined that she had not violated any rules or procedures. Still, Cotroneo withdrew her acceptance for the job and parted ways with the City.
