From Michael Mayko, CT Post:
Eneida Martinez is stepping away from her City Council leadership spot and committees while the police investigation continues into a fatal shooting at the social club she managed.
Martinez told the City Council Monday night that she temporarily will “refrain from participating in chairing or sitting” in any committee meetings, and added, “My friends I will remember. My enemies I will not forget.”
Aidee Nieves, the council’s president, temporarily replaced Martinez as the council’s majority leader with deputy leader Jeannette Herron, and added M. Evette Brantley as a deputy majority leader temporarily replacing Herron.
Martinez briefly protested her removal as majority leader, saying it was not something she requested.
