HAWKINS, Texas — The mayor of Hawkins is calling for two City Council members to step down and face criminal charges after a member’s son gained unauthorized access to the city’s computer system, raising concerns of a data breach.

Shahaub Tafreshinejad, the son of Place 4 Alderwoman Eleta Taylor, spent hours installing remote-access and network mapping programs on a computer April 1 at City Hall, hours before Mayor Debbie Rushing was sworn into office, Rushing and other city officials told the News-Journal.

Mayor Pro Tem Charles Richoz, who was serving as interim mayor until Rushing took office, allowed Tafreshinejad to enter City Hall and install the programs on a computer in his office, according to video taken by Mike Maberry, the city’s utilities director.
