City Attorney Jeanine McIntyre returns to office, Council still has unanswered questions


(WLNS) – At last night’s meeting, Council was scheduled to vote on an interim City Attorney, until current City Attorney Jeanine McIntyre surprised Council by showing up to the meeting.

McIntyre has been on an indefinite leave of absence without communicating with City Council the reasons behind her leave, or when she would return.

City Council President Judi Brown Clarke told 6 News she did reach out to McIntyre today, on her first full day back at her office, but McIntyre did not get back to her.

Clarke said she, and the rest of Council have questions they need answers to.

“What happened? What happened, and what do we as council need to know?,” Clarke said.

Clarke said she believes McIntyre will be able to meet up with her in the next few days, to get the questions answered, and hear the story everyone has been waiting to hear.
