Councilmember Myrtle Cole's Statement

San Diego City Councilmember Myrtle Cole issued the following comments in response to Mayor Bob Filner’s statement earlier today regarding sexual harassment allegations and a call for his resignation:

“As a former police officer, I am very aware of the seriousness of these sexual harassment allegations.

“I am very shocked and disappointed to hear the Mayor admit to his inappropriate behavior, and seeking help is the right first step.

“And as the Mayor has indicated, if his behavior doesn’t change or further erodes the ability of the City to conduct the people’s business, then he should resign.”
