The Mayor of Hutto has passed away. The city says Mayor David Begier died last night from complications related to heart bypass surgery. Begier was first elected mayor of Hutto in May 2009. "He was known in the community. He's going to be missed tremendously, " said Hutto city manager Edward Broussard, "there's a large hole in people's hearts this morning as they’re finding out the news."
Broussard said one of the mayor's major accomplishments was getting Temple College to agree to open a campus in Hutto. Mayor David Begier was 69 years old.
