Winnecke Speaks Out About Allegations Against Brinkerhoff-Riley

Evansville city council vice president Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley is being accused of recording and distributing a transcript of a private meeting in March with state officials during the audit of the city’s 2012 budget.

According to the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s office, no charges have been filed against Evansville city council vice president Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley.

Brinkerhoff-Riley allegedly recorded and distributed a transcript of a private meeting in March with state officials during the audit of the city’s 2012 budget. We’re told the details of that meeting are not to be made public and may even be against the law.

Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke said he was notified of the alleged recording and distribution on Saturday. He called Brinkerhoff-Riley’s actions ‘clearly a violation’ and went on to say he has ‘great concern and suspicion’ that previous meetings have been secretly recorded, but has no proof of that.

City council attorney Scott Danks said a caucus has been called for Wednesday to discuss the council’s leadership.
