Dover City Council votes to censure councilman

DOVER, Del. - The Dover City Council voted to censure a councilman on Monday night.

On Monday night, the Dover City Council voted six to three to censure Councilman Brian Lewis.

According to members on the council, Lewis committed an ethics violation after speaking to a news reporter about Councilman Tanner Polce.

Lewis reportedly urged the city solicitor to investigate a possible conflict of interest after Councilman Tanner Polce voted to sell the old Dover library to Wesley College for a $1. Polce works part-time at Wesley College.

During the meeting on Monday night, Lewis told Council President Timothy Slavin that it was not his intention to mislead a news reporter and that he felt like his rights were being violated because he did not feel like he was given due process by having a proper investigation.
