Santa Clara City Councilman Dominic Caserta has resigned following allegations of sexual harassment that came to light after the Santa Clara Unified School District released his personal file.
Caserta said in a statement that he will also no longer run for county District 4 Supervisor.
“Political adversaries are motivated to discredit my candidacy, bury me professionally and personally,” he said. "I will not let that happen.”
Caserta has denied allegations that he allegedly harassed or acted inappropriately
“The allegations against me are all false in every sense of the word,” he said in the statement. “Yet, I have been tried and convicted in the court of public opinion without due process or recognition of my distinguished service to school and the city. Reading the papers, online reports and watching the news is too much for my family and me to bear.”
At least nine potential victims have filed police reports against Caserta citing improper behavior.
