City Council members and influential community leaders endorsed Mayor Charles P. Sammarone’s decision to fire Jay Macejko as city prosecutor. City Councilwoman Janet Tarpley, D-6th, said she is “100 percent” in support of the mayor’s decision to terminate Macejko. “I think he had to. I don’t think he wanted to” fire Macejko, Tarpley said, adding that she considered Macejko a friend and was disappointed with the manner of his departure. “I respect the decision. I think it’s probably in the best interests of the community and the prosecutor’s office,” said the Rev. Kenneth Simon, pastor of New Bethel Baptist Church on the city’s South Side.
