Call to action — Letters to the Editor, Nov. 17, 2018


Call to action

I strongly condemn Mayor Henry’s partisanship and make an ardent call to action.

In the past, progressive issues brought to Mayor Henry for consideration by the City Council, such as sanctuary city status, gun violence prevention, climate change and support for educational upgrades, were sharply rebuffed and in some cases demeaned by the mayor. 

You can counter the mayor’s blockage by going directly to the council and presenting your issue during public input period available at each meeting.

Requests to address the City Council can be made online or by downloading a speaker’s card that can be presented at the meeting (preferred). Speaker’s cards will also be available at the meeting.

Check the City calendar for meeting dates and times. Meetings are generally every first and third Monday of the month at 5:30 p.m.

It’s time to bring your issues directly to the council in a public forum.

That is democracy in action.
