Statement From City Council President Pro Tempore Sabina Matos
I was disappointed and deeply offended to learn of Council President Salvatore’s outbursts and disrespectful verbal assault towards two of my colleagues. The unfortunate irony is that Council President Salvatore berated them for “not supporting women.” Is this how he supports women?
This behavior is unacceptable regardless of the circumstances, even more so when dealing with two Councilwomen. We must have zero tolerance for this type of abusive and bullying behavior demonstrated by Council President Salvatore.
Council President Salvatore needs to issue a public apology immediately and enroll in anger management and sensitivity training, which would be required of any city employee who engaged in such abhorrent behavior.
Sabina Matos, Council President Pro Tempore
