Should indicted City Council Members resign from the council or stay?

There was breaking news about 10:00 this morning and it was a shocking report.

Two Jacksonville City Council members were indicted for bank fraud and money laundering.

This is a sad day for Jacksonville.  This is not how we want our home town to be viewed.

Eye on Jacksonville was formed to hold our government servants accountable to the people they serve.  We believe there are many unanswered questions that will be exposed during the investigation.  Eye would hope to find out the answer to this question:

“If this breaking news is true, how could this happen with our money and does the City have accountability measurements in place for all monies they dole out in grants, loans, incentives, etc.?”

That’s another story for another day and we will be covering it here.  We promise you that.

We understand all people are innocent until proven guilty.  We also know that these are serious charges and will take time and energy for these two members to focus on their defense.  Will they have time to focus on City Council business?

City Council President Anna Brosche has removed both members from their committee responsibilities.  That is good and we appreciate her making this decision.

Our question is this:

Do you believe Katrina Brown and Reggie Brown should resign or stay on the Council?
