A mayor who said, "What are we serving, pig today?" near an officer in a grocery store has stepped down.
According to WPTV, Mayor Eula Clarke resigned from her position Wednesday.
She did not step down from from her position as city commissioner.
“Unfortunately, I made a mistake. We all make mistakes and I am truly and humbly sorry,” Clarke said.
The city is in the process of hiring an independent investigator to look further into the statement and make sure policies were not violated.
“It’s not for the purpose of punishing anybody. It’s making sure that the work environment at the city is free from the perception of hostility,” Mortell said.
