Brook Park Councilwoman indicted for shoplifting resigns (again)

BROOK PARK, OH (WOIO) - Indicted Brook Park Councilwoman Julie Anne McCormick has officially resigned after refusing to leave city council.

Here is the letter she sent to Mayor Thomas J. Coyne:

Dear Mayor Coyne,

She earlier had been indicted for two thefts totaling over $1,000 from Target stores in Strongsville and North Olmsted. The councilwoman resigned in a letter to Council President Jim Astorino after the first case, then because the resignation was not signed she later claimed she did not resign.

When asked to leave city council, she refused and filed a temporary restraining order against council, temporarily halting any effort to remove her.
