Former Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon has said he hopes people are praying for him and his family.

“If I could speak to you I would,” Cannon said in declining an interview request from the Observer. “Hoping I and my family are in your prayers.”

Cannon resigned last week after his arrest on corruption charges. FBI agents allege he took $48,000 in payoffs in cash and other benefits.
