Police union votes no confidence in Ginther, other city leaders
COLUMBUS (WSYX/WTTE) —
Columbus' police union has given a vote of "no confidence" to Mayor Andrew Ginther and city council president Zach Klein.
The vote -- involving Ginther, Klein and city safety director Ned Pettus -- was taken at Thursday's Fraternal Order of Police meeting.
The FOP is calling for the city to hire 100 more police officers and reinstate Zach Rosen, who was fired in July after a review of video that showed Rosen kicking a suspect in the head.
In a previous statement, Klein said he would remain committed to working with CPD.
"I will continue to work with them, the Department of Public Safety and the Columbus Division of Police to ensure that our city is safe and that officers have the necessary resources to do their jobs. My duty is to serve the citizens of the city of Columbus and I will always strive to do what is right to represent them."
