Aaron Campbell's family deserves that the City Council pushes for justice in every arena. The Employment Relations Board made clear in their decision that they are limited by court precedent in their interpretation of state statutes. While I am not surprised by the decision ordering the reinstatement of Officer Frashour, I am deeply disappointed.
Unless I hear new reasoning at the public hearing to decide whether the City should appeal, I believe we must take the next step to ask the Court of Appeals to look at the unique facts of the Frashour case, and ask the Court to overturn the decision of the ERB. I have also suggested to Mayor Adams that we ask the 2013 Legislature to amend any statutes that are not clear and reasonable, so everyone understands the lines of accountability and responsibility.
