Ohio Mayor Resigns After Allegations Of Anti-Gay Slurs
Mary McAngus is accused of using terms like “queer” and refusing to allow the partner of an officer to visit the police station.
McAngus hand-delivered a resignation letter to a village council member today, said Council President Jackie Welker.
The letter was only a few sentences. McAngus did not acknowledge that she had treated Police Officer Kyle Calendine poorly. She wrote that “due to circumstances,” she was resigning and that it had been a pleasure to serve as mayor the past 14 months…
She was accused of calling Calendine a queer and using other slurs. Others said she didn’t want Calendine’s partner stopping by the police department, though family members of other officers routinely drop by with lunch or before or after a shift.
