Trenton Mayor Tony Mack held his first media event since his arrest in September. Although the reason for his appearance was an announcement of the restoration of some city curbs, sidewalks and roads, all questions from the media focused on his recent arrest.

“Those are legal situations we are not allowed to discuss, but I will say this, and I’ve said it before — in America, you’re innocent until proven guilty and I’m innocent,” said Mack. The mayor said he has no plans to step down, even though some council members and residents have called for his resignation.

The mayor and council will meet face to face tomorrow at a city council meeting to discuss topics ranging from the budget to crime in the city. Mack plans to attend with his cabinet members to answer questions related to Trenton.
