According to the Council, Martinez is out of a job after audio leaked online showing Martinez hurling racist remarks about a fellow member’s child. The audio is understood to have been from an October 2021 conversation where she called a child a ‘little monkey’ and that he ‘needed a beatdown’ following a conversation about redistricting.

“It is with a broken heart that I resign my seat for Council District 6, the community I grew up in and my home,” she said in a long statement according to multiple reports out Wednesday.
