Community Members React to Lopez Staying On Council

Thursday night, 5 News went to the Clarksburg City Council Meeting where Councilman Zeke Lopez said he has no intention of stepping down from his position.

Lopez showed up to the meeting with his wife and he said the claims against him aren't true. 5 News also talked to people in the area about this, but first a quick recap.

Lopez said the statement he gave Thursday night will be the only public comment he intends to make. The councilman was recently arrested for domestic abuse related to an incident a few months ago. That's when he allegedly beat his wife several times with a rolling pin. Lopez said he can't explain how sorry he is.

Friday, 5 News went out in Harrison County to see how people in the community feel about this and two people, who want to remain anonymous, had very different views.

"I think they should let the legal process play out. I think sometimes we over react to things and it's hard to tell what's going to come out in the end," said Harrison County Resident. 

"I don't think that's a very good role model. We don't need these types of influences on our young children," said Harrison County Resident.
