City Richard McIver

City Council member Richard McIver, who was arrested last week on suspicion of assaulting his wife, Marlaina Kiner-McIver, was supposed to be back at work on Friday. That didn’t happen. Then, he was supposed to be back in the office (and doing interviews with the press) today, after going to court at 10 a.m. to find out whether prosecutors would move forward with charges. That didn’t happen either. Instead, the court hearing was pushed to Wednesday, and McIver’s still a no-show at City Hall. There are two meetings of the council’s budget committee, which McIver chairs, on tomorrow’s council schedule. McIver’s staff didn’t know when he planned to return, but it probably won’t be tomorrow. What all this means for McIver’s future on the council is anyone’s guess, but staying away from city hall for a full week after his arrest last Tuesday certainly doesn’t look good.
