Banks to CP: 'I Want to Continue to Serve'



In his first public statement since his arrest last month on a misdemeanor charge of patronizing prostitution, stemming from a police sting operation Feb. 16, District 4 Councilman Brady Banks indicates to the CP's Joey Garrison he does not plan to resign his council post:

What’s been the most difficult part about the last two weeks?

The most difficult thing has been to begin the process of repairing the damage done to my relationships, especially with my wife, having to explain this failure to family and friends, and coming to grips with my actions.

I know your lawyer will not allow you to talk about the pending case. Excluding the event for which you have been charged, have you ever solicited a prostitute?


Less than 24 hours after your arrest, you resigned from your job at the governor’s Books From Birth Foundation. Do you plan to resign from your Metro Council seat or will you continue serving?

I have been dealing with what is most important — my wife and my family — and trying to get all the help I need to start rebuilding trust and healing my relationships. I plan to work as hard as I can to regain the respect and trust of the people I was elected to serve.
