Former South Bend Mayor and Indiana Governor Joe Kernan has scheduled a news conference for Wednesday morning to express disappointment in the behavior of the city's Common Council.

According to a news release, Kernan plans to join with a group of "concerned community leaders" to announce to the public their disapproval of the council's behavior and progress toward tackling the city's issues. Kernan's release said he is particularly disappointed with "a two-year pattern of bickering, inappropriate behavior, obstructionism, lack of accountability, and an inability or unwillingness to move forward."

The conference will take place at 10:30am in the lobby of the County-City building, and can be watched live on fox28.com.
