Tomorrow, Mayor Tom to Say When He's Done

About an hour ago, Rudy posted a piece saying Mayor Tom Leppert's announcing his resignation tomorrow, during the city council meeting. But that doesn't mean he's ending his term tomorrow.

A little while ago I asked the mayor's chief of staff, Chris Heinbaugh, for further details. All he would say is: "Mayor Leppert will have remarks at the end of tomorrow's meeting. They will address the timing of the end of his term." Heinbaugh said the mayor will not step down tomorrow.

So, then, when? Those familiar with the situation say he'll resign by no later than Sunday.
