Westchester Politics, Never Boring..
All eyes will be on White Plains Mayor Adam Bradley on Monday.
After a weekend of cooling off time, Bradley is due back in court, where a date's expected to be set for a trial on charges that he assaulted his wife, Fumiko.
There was word Friday, that the White Plains Common Council decided to hold off on a vote for his ouster, following a phone call by Bradley to give him more time. Several Common Councilmembers have been vocal in calling for him to step down.
But on Sunday night, Bradley's spokeswoman, Antoinette Biordi insisted her boss had no plans to resign but rather, continue "Doing the work he was elected to do."
Several weeks ago, Bradley was offered a plea bargain, in exchange for him attending domestic violence abuse classes. He declined and said the case will go to court and he'll "Be vindicated."
Will he have a change of heart and take the plea bargain (can he still take the plea bargain?)
Will he step down? Will the Council vote him out of office?
Stay tuned as they say..
