Calls for Robbinsdale Council Member to Resign Continue, Kline Says He Will Stay
In this week’s Robbinsdale city council meeting, people called for council member Tyler Kline’s resignation during the untelevised public comment portion of the meeting and then some council members reiterated the ask during the end of the meeting.
Kline said he will not resign.
“I will say I am hearing from plenty of people, more people have reached out in support of staying on the council and I get that’s not what everyone’s hearing, but I can speak to those who are reaching out to me,” said Kline. “I am going to continue to be here and do good for the people of Ward 1.”
Council member Pat Backen again asked for Kline to resign and council member George Selman did as well.
“I have not had anyone contact me saying to leave you alone or stop bringing this up. Maybe I will now,” added Selman. “It still stakes up a lot of time, and this is important city business, sadly.”
In the council communication portion of the meeting, Selman also reiterated several members comments who spoke in the untelevised portion of the meeting and suggested the council discuss televising the comments during a future work session.
As of now in regard’s to Kline’s case, none of the conditions set forth in the city charter allow for there to be a vacancy on the city council.
