A councillor who said disabled children "should be put down" to save money has apologised - but refused to resign, claiming he "did nothing wrong".
Collin Brewer has complied with standards board orders to apologise but says he has no intention of resigning.
He told the BBC:
Clearly it has gone to the standards board to provide any penalty whatsoever and the penalty they imposed was to write a letter of apology.
I have no intention of resigning. I don't think I have done anything wrong. I have apologised.
I have been a councillor for nearly 26 years. I have always worked to the best of my ability.
