comment over the phone but not in

absorbing the impact of having a
sitting mayor facing federal fraud and
obstruction charges.

Hutcherson has been on council for
nine years, the last five as the city's
mayor.

Right now, at least, his future as
an elected official is up to him.

There is no city ordinance that
would require him to resign ... and
state law only requires a resignation

after a conviction and appeals process.

Right now, council members want to
hear what Hutcherson has to say about
his future before they make any
judgements.
