UPDATE 4/8/19 12:00 PM EST
The Mayor’s Office released a statement Monday around 11:45 a.m., saying Pugh will return to her office once she has recovered from pneumonia.
“Mayor Pugh has taken a leave to focus on recovering from pneumonia and regaining her health. She fully intends to resume the duties of her office and continuing her work on behalf of the people and the City of Baltimore,” the statement read.
The Baltimore City Council has sent a letter to Mayor Catherine Pugh urging her to resign from her position immediately.
The 14 members of the Baltimore City Council except for Acting Mayor Jack Young signed the letter. It comes just after a spokesman announced that she would return to City Hall as soon as her health allows.
The Baltimore City Council believes that it is not in the best interest of the city of Baltimore for you to continue to serve as Mayor. We urge you to tender your resignation, effective immediately.
