As a body, we would like to address the recent news regarding Councilwoman Amy Fowler and the allegations against her. We very much appreciate her statement during our Council meeting earlier today.
We believe elected officials are accountable to the public they serve. Councilwoman Fowler is taking immediate actions, including stepping down from her leadership role as Redevelopment Agency (RDA) Vice Chair for the year and stepping back from some of her public duties for 30 days as a Councilwoman to focus on this personal matter.
We believe it is important to recognize that, as humans, Council Members make mistakes and errors. We also believe in extending compassion and grace to all individuals, including our Council colleagues, at times like this.
We want to be clear that, as the City Council, we consider the safety and well-being of the public our utmost priority. During this process, we remain committed to transparency and serving the residents of Salt Lake City to the best of our ability.
District 7 constituents can still count on support and representation from Councilwoman Fowler and the full Council during her absence. As always, residents may reach the Council Office at 801-535-7600 or email@example.com.
We will continue to inform the public of any developments regarding this matter.
