SEAT PLEASANT, Md. (WNEW) — A Maryland mayor says he plans to pitch a tent in front of city hall Monday after the city council voted in a closed-door meeting to evict him from his office over complaints about his harsh language and treatment of city employees.

Seat Pleasant Mayor Eugene Grant says he will hold meetings and conduct business there if that’s what it comes to.

Grant doesn’t deny that he’s sometimes intense, aggressive and demanding.

“I have expectations,” he says.

He and the council have clashed over several issues in recent years, but Grant has no plans to step down. He may even run for a fourth term in 2016, he says.
