Mary McAngus

Small town and small-minded Pomerey, Ohio Mayor Mary McAngus has resigned today complaints that she had questioned the Police Chief about the existence of a “queer” police officer on the force and saying she didn’t want his partner stopping by the police station.

The Columbus Dispatch reports:

[Police Chief] Proffitt last month submitted to the village council an information packet that included his six-page sworn statement. He warned the council that the mayor’s behavior could get the village of 2,000 residents sued.

Proffitt wrote that McAngus called him into her office about two weeks after Calendine was hired. She said she heard “that Kyle was a queer” and asked what the chief was going to do about it. Nothing, he replied, because that would be discrimination.

“She stated ‘I don’t like a Queer working for the Village, I might be old-fashioned, but I don’t like it.’  ” Proffitt wrote in the statement.

The mayor persisted in making crude comments about the officer and his partner to police department employees, Proffitt said. She asked a newly hired officer if he knew that Calendine was gay and whether that bothered him. When the officer said no, she asked him if he, too, was gay, and smiled and stared at him until the uncomfortable officer said he had to get back to work, Proffitt said.

Mary McAngus did not apologize for her anti-gay behavior and statements but resigned by just stating it was “due to circumstances”

Pomeroy, OH is a town on the Ohio River, bordering on West Virginia
