Re: “Mayor charged,” Dec. 11 Metro:


Whether he is ultimately found innocent or not, it is obvious this investigation has already distracted Mayor Larry O’Brien, council, and city at large, away from the important business city council (and the mayor’s office) is responsible for, day-in and day-out. To end this distraction, O’Brien should immediately step down.


Whether him having to step down is just temporary or not, that will be determined when the issue proceeds to trial and the judge issues the verdict. Until that day, the only honourable option is to step down.
