Ward 4 Councillor Sam Merulla intends to bring a motion to Council at next Wednesday's meeting calling for the formal censure of Mayor Bob Bratina for his actions related to the $30,000 raise granted to his Chief of Staff, Peggy Chapman.
Here is the full text of the motion:
Whereas, notwithstanding the Mayor's public apology to H.R. staff in December 2011, he has recently stated that the matter of monetary compensation to a member of his staff, was left to the outcome of a review by H.R.; and
Whereas, the Mayor attempted to direct that an investigation regarding the release of information to the media pertaining to a staff member in his office included on the "Sunshine List" be conducted, including a demand that staff provide signed affidavits, without any consultation with, or authorization by Council; and
Whereas, this Council believes these actions fall below the standards of conduct which are expected of a Member of Council.
Therefore Be It Resolved:
Council formally expresses its censure of Mayor Bratina for his conduct in this matter.
Update: On Wednesday, March 28, 2012, Council voted 15-1 to Censure Mayor Bratina. The vote was taken without any discussion after Councillor Merulla read the motion. Only Bratina voted against it.
