Residents in the south Florida town of Stuart are not happy with Mayor Eula Clarke after she threw an open insult at an officer in their town.
The insult came from Mayor Eula Clarke while inside of a grocery store. Mayor Clarke reportedly said, “What are we serving, pig today?,” when she entered the store and saw the officer. After the Palm Beach County Police Benevolent Association got involved, she issued an apology in what she called an “unfortunate incident.”
According to John Kazanjian, the president of the local Police Benevolent Association, a Stuart police officer was inside Taylor’s grocery store on January 11th when the Mayor, Eula Clarke walked in. The officer then left the store, very upset by the verbal insult made by the mayor of the town he was hired to protect.
Clarke has since come under sharp scrutiny for the incident. She embarrassingly tried to avoid questions on whether it actually happened during a recent interview with WPTV.
When a local reporter tried to interview Clarke about the incident, she begun by trying to skirt the details. “So what happened on January the 11 involving a Stuart police officer?,” he asked.
“Andrew, I told you I want to make a short statement to the public,” she said.
He tries again by asking her, “Did you make a reference to a pig in reference to a Stuart police officer?”
“Again, I’m telling you that I support law enforcement,” she replied. She scrambled to dodge the direct questions but later backtracked and said, “It happened. That was something that happened. It’s done with. I want to move on. I want the officers to work for our community. I want them to believe in what I do as mayor. To believe in what they do for their jobs. I just want to make sure that they know I have their backs,” she said.
