Defying council, White Plains mayor refuses to resign

Despite mounting pressure, White Plains Mayor Adam Bradley says he has no plans to resign.

Last night, the White Plains Common Council voted 5-2 to pass a no-confidence resolution. The vote came two weeks after a judge found Bradley guilty of five domestic-abuse charges stemming from an incident involving his wife, Fumiko.

The council needed a unanimous vote to remove Bradley. The dissenting members were Bradley himself and his longtime friend, Dennis Power.

Council members say they're determined to remove Bradley, but unless he resigns, only the state governor can oust him. At least four council members say they are writing to Gov.-elect Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) to have Bradley removed.

A spokesman for Cuomo was noncommittal, saying only the governor-elect will review any request that comes before him when he takes office.
