SAN BENITO — Mayor Alfonso Benavides has been cleared of an ethics complaint about running a snow cone business next to his barber shop.
The city council threw out the case on Monday evening by determining the ethic complaint was not true. Mayor Benavides stated, "I'm glad this thing is over and done with, I hope they stop messing with my character as far as my name and things like that because it's the same group of people that actually started same thing when they removed me the first time." The mayor says he looks forward to continuing his duties for the city.
