Mayor Eddie Perez has agreed to resign his office sometime next week, sources told WNPR.
Perez said on Tuesday that he would relinquish his duties as mayor, and that he would do so on a date to be agreed upon with his successor – Council President Pedro Segarra. Later that day, Segarra held a press conference and said that the mayor would formally announce his resignation date on Friday.
Now, three sources familiar with the situation say that Perez has agreed to resign sometime next week.
A jury found Perez guilty of five corruption-related charges on June 18.
