Akron City Council President Confident They'll Break Impasse on Citizens Police Oversight Board

Written by

Akron City Council President Margo Sommerville says she believes that despite being unable to reach an agreement for the past two weeks about who should be on the City's new Citizens Police Oversight Board; they'll be able to get it done on Wednesday at a special City Council meeting. 

That's because, she says, they're going to remove the key sticking point from the mix; Akron attorney, Imokhai Okolo, from the list of candidates. Okolo has been strongly supported by some City Council members, and opposed by others, causing a deadlock at the past two regular City Council meetings.

Listen now, to find out more, as she talks about it with our Morning Show Host, Ray Horner.
