Following a speech using profane language, the Matthews Town Council President and his wife, the town’s clerk-treasurer, walked out of the meeting Tuesday, saying they quit.

Both David and Sandy Loer packed up their belongings midway through the meeting after members of the public pressed the town’s officials to provide proof that they’ve paid their sewage bills. At the last meeting, members of the public raised claims of nepotism since the Loers’ son was hired as the sewage billing clerk at a board meeting earlier this year.
