San Marino Mayor Dennis Kneier proved today that he is a man of integrity, announcing his resignation a week after he was caught throwing a bag of dog poop on his neighbor’s lawn.
In a heartfelt letter sent to the San Marino City Council, Kneier acknowledged that he made a big doo-doo on this one.
“It was insensitive, disrespectful and wrong,” he said of his poop-slinging. “I have apologized to my neighbor for my action, and I will pay a fine for littering.”
“I can understand why this matter has some questioning my ability to lead the council,” he continued. “I want to assure you that something like this will not happen again. At the same time, these events continue to be embarrassing to me, and to the City. Because of this, I have decided to step down as Mayor.”
Kneier will continue to
shit sit on the City Council until the end of his term, and he will be replaced by Vice-Mayor Eugene Sun.
We salute Kneier for his integrity and principled actions, but the City of San Marino has much to accomplish if they want to win back the civic trust of their people — namely, by ensuring that the new mayor is a cat lover.
