Police Controversy

On January 11, 2017, Mayor Clarke called a police officer a pig.

According to the union, she and Officer Ed Fitzgerald were at Taylor's Grocery Store.

Officer Fitzgerald was speaking with the store clerk when the mayor looked at him and said:

"I didn't know we were serving pig tonight."

She publicly apologized for the insult and wrote a letter to Stuart's police department.

Nevertheless, there are calls for her to resign as a result of her comments.
