The Mayor of Piedmont, California Jeff Wieler resigned over the weekend after being accused of saying some pretty inflammatory things about folks who don't think/look like he does.
There was to be a meeting where he may have gotten voted out by the Piedmont city council but ahead of that happening Wieler decided to apologize & resign his position as Mayor.
Some of the things he was to be called to the carpet on were statements he allegedly made before his page was made private like: “The left is dangerous and un-American”; “Black Lives Matter encourages cop killing”; and “Transgenders are mentally ill.”
Part of the statement former mayor Wieler released upon his resignation read: “I am proud of what I accomplished as a civic volunteer. I am less proud of how my service as mayor is ending,”
