Councillor Glasgow ‘sorry’ for television behaviour

NOOSA Councillor Jess Glasgow has publicly apologised for his behaviour on reality television series The Bachelorette.

"To the whole of Australia at the moment and especially the Noosa people, I'm sorry," Cr Glasgow said.

"These actions where appalling and I don't condone the stuff at all.

"I'm truly sorry, I don't know what to say, it was a reality TV show and I made a very poor judgment."

Noosa Mayor Tony Wellington addressed media on Friday to condemn Cr Glasgow's behaviour hours after he recommended the "disgraced" councillor resign.

"My wife and I watched the second episode of The Bachelorette last night and we were both appalled and I'm sure many thousands of Australian's were that saw the show," Mr Wellington said.

"The behaviour evidence by Cr Glasgow was vile, was reprehensible and it was thoroughly misogynistic."

Cr Glasgow did confirm he won't be resigning from his councillor role despite Mr Wellington's recommendation.

His is however currently under investigation with the Office of the Independent Assessor for misconduct.
