City Councilwoman Connie Robinson announced on her Facebook page that she will be leaving the local Democratic Party. On Wednesday, Robinson shared a letter on Facebook with Chairman Scott Danks.
Robinson says the Democratic Party has become a party of “regression and racist sentiments”. She further says the party has dissolved into a “party of intolerance”.
In the Facebook post, Robinson says she will finish her term as an independent.
Robinson ends the Facebook post saying she will continue to be a voice for the voiceless.
44News has reached out to Councilwoman Robinson for comment.
