Cape Coral mayor allowed to vote despite controversy

Published: Updated:

CAPE CORAL, Fla. — Mayor Marni Retzer was able to vote with Cape Coral’s city council Monday in an agreement to benefit firefighters.

It was unclear whether Mayor Retzer would be allowed to vote because of her relationship with Cape Coral firefighter Ken Retzer.

In July, Mayor Retzer married Ken Retzer after she filed a restraining order against him.

She stated in court filings she skipped a council meeting because Ken Retzer was known to show up and was afraid for her safety.

Ken Retzer filed for divorce from Mayor Retzer last week after two months of marriage.
