Tell Sonya Arrington to resign from Erie City Council

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


The President of Erie's City Council, Sonya Arrington *admitted* to the FBI that she stole at least $70,000 from her non-profit to fuel her gambling addiction, and was indicted by a grand jury on 33 counts of wire fraud, theft of government property, and submitting false documents to the government.

She lied to Social Security to continue to collect payments, she lied to donors, and now that she faces "Up to 635 years in prison and / or $7,000,000 in fines."

Erie City Council and Mayor Joe Schember have been silent. 

Not one of these elected officials have come forward to ask Arrington to resign from City Council, or even step down as president of the council.

This is unacceptable.

Political favor-trading is not an excuse to keep one of the top representatives of our city in office.

Sonya Arrington needs to resign effective immediately.

Join me in sending this message to City Council - sign and share this petition!
