5:06 pm
meeting to create a quorum. if one of my colleagues is conflicted out, government has a whole different code. if you are, if you misbehave if you sort of tarnish your office like he has you are unfit to serve since the elected mayor cannot be ousted by the council that makes the current recall effort the remaining remedy, but cal poly professor of ethics steven mintz says this i don't think six women would subject themselves to such public scrutiny. if they didn't fully believe it was sexual assault. so for the good of the community, i think you should resign. everyone we met at the windsor shopping center said step down. not aside. he doesn't have the faith of the community any longer. it's a waste of resource is women have been suffering this for eons, and it's about time it stops. now, if the mayor relies on the
