Maricopa Councilwoman Gusse asks Marchione to resign

By Christina Sampson

Maricopa City Councilwoman Julia Gusse asked for Councilman Alan Marchione’s resignation in an email she sent to media outlets Friday afternoon.

According to the email, sent about 3 p.m., this is the second time she has asked Marchione to resign.

“After reading the initial workplace complaint by City Manager (Brenda) Fisher and during the investigation, I asked Mr. Sims to request your resignation on my behalf,” Gusse wrote in the email. “Mr. Sims later informed me that he did submit my request to you and that you refused.”

“Mr. Marchione I ask you once more – please submit your resignation,” she continued.

Marchione said during a phone interview Friday afternoon he will not resign.

Gusse said she is requesting Marchione’s resignation because the behavior described in the complaint filed by Fischer “is unbecoming.”

Also, during an interview Friday afternoon, Gusse said “several citizens have already approached me about a recall effort.”
