A retired oil company worker-turned-politician, Goularte, 66, stirred emotions two weeks ago when he repeated a derogatory statement that he said a merchant had told him.

The City Council has designated Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday a paid holiday and reprimanded the mayor who earlier said he didn't want to pay city employees "to take the day off to honor a (black man)." Council members Ann Williams and Gretchen Mariotto urged colleagues to oust Mayor John Goularte at a contentious meeting attended by more than 100 people. But the effort to remove the mayor fizzled when the council unanimously accepted Goularte's apology.
