Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley Steps Down as City Council V.P.

Earlier today the Evansville City Council Vice President gave up her title as V.P.
City Council member Brinkerhoff-Riley has resigned as Vice President of the council. Her resignation came moments before the council was scheduled to meet to discuss her removal from the position. 

Here is her video statement.

Brinkerhoff-Riley came under fire recently after it was revealed she secretly recorded a meeting with several other council members, the Mayor, and a representative of the State Board of Accounts.  Brinkerhoff-Riley says the issue is not what she did, but rather why the city can't get a clean audit.

The 3rd Ward Democrat released a copy of the recording on her website.

She had previously stated she would not step down.

She continues to represent the 3rd ward as a city council member.
