“I need some time to think on this,” Guanci said. “Part of me is thinking of this as a one-time incident and this is one strike.”

“Many of us here may believe in a second chance, but we have to weigh that against the fact that Mr. Doyle will be interacting with the public, and ultimately our chief concern has to be the safety of the public,” Councilor Scott Houseman said. “I think my decision has already been made, but I don’t think there’s any harm in waiting two weeks.”

Councilor Jim Latter, saying he knows Doyle, addressed him directly.

“No matter what we decide, just stay sober,” Latter said. “Try to help yourself, please, because I have known you a long time, and I want you to be well.”
