ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

Marcy Cleaver, the wife of former Odessa City Councilman Bill Cleaver, said she wants "somebody with preexisting knowledge of the community" to serve as Roger McNeil's replacement.

McNeil served as District 1 Councilman from 2012 until this week, when illness-related absences led to his departure from the City Council.

Some residents, including Mary Cleaver, said they now fear a lack of representation in city politics.

She said she's hoping for a Councilman with a development-focused mindset to take McNeil's seat.
