Arredondo was elected to Uvalde City Council on May 7th, 2022 just days before the massacre at Robb Elementary School in which gunman Salvador Ramos killed 19 children and two teachers.
“The mayor, the city council, and the city staff must continue to move forward without distractions. I feel this is the best decision for Uvalde,” Arredondo said.

Some have said that Arredondo’s resignation is not enough. Journalist Jack Posobiec said that he should face jail time for letting the school shooting happen under his watch.
Not good enough. Needs to be behind bars. https://t.co/nRmQ6RMRZs

Others called for him to be criminally tried as well, saying that his police preventing parents from going in to the school to save their children as police stood by was wrong.
Next step, jail; if for nothing more than preventing those armed parents from saving the life of their own kids; and this is further example of why government should have no part in Americans god given right of self defense, and as Malcolm X said, “By Any Means Necessary”
