DURANT, Okla. (KXII) - Durant Mayor Oden Grube announced her resignation Friday due to health reasons.

Grube was elected as Ward 2 Councilmember in 2017 and became the city’s first female mayor in 2019.

“I’m sad to resign, but I have to make my health a priority,” Grube said. “It has been a pleasure working with my fellow councilmembers and to serve the citizens of Durant.”

Vice Mayor Danny Sherrer will serve as acting mayor until the April elections.

The city council will elect a new mayor on April 17.
