INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Indianapolis City-County Councilor Jeff Miller said he has no intentions on resigning amid child molestation charges.

Miller sent an email Friday afternoon to neighborhoods he represents, and the 16th district indicating them of his decision not to resign.

The email stated any councilor can attend committee meetings, and share support or disapproval on a proposal.

“So regardless of which committees I serve on in the future, know that I will always be at any meeting that impacts the quality of life of neighborhoods in our city,” Miller wrote.

The message comes ahead of a meeting scheduled for Monday where three of Miller’s colleagues will decide whether to remove him from the city committees he currently serves on.

Miller was suspended from the Board of Directors for Renew Indianapolis, and the CEO of Indiana Recycling Coalition said Miller suspended himself from their board. 

On Tuesday, Miller attended several community meetings, and did not comment on whether he thinks he can effectively serve on council while facing criminal charges.
