Interim Akron Mayor Garry Moneypenny Resigns
Just days after stating he would not step down before the November election, interim Akron Mayor Garry Moneypenny has announced his resignation.
Moneypenny admitted on Friday, June 5, to inappropriately touching a city employee before being sworn in. Upon reflection, he now believes he will not be able to operate effectively for the next seven months and it is not in the citizens’ best interests for him to stay on as interim mayor.
His resignation is effective at midnight on Wednesday, June 10, 2015.
