Censure is back on the Santa Cruz City Council agenda

Santa Cruz City Council

The proposed Censure of Councilmembers Chris Krohn and Drew Glover is back on the Santa Cruz City Council agenda. Mayor Watkins has said the item will be heard from 4:30 to 6:00.

A discussion of censuring Councilmembers Chris Krohn and Drew Glover was on the agenda of the last City Council meeting on September 24, however a motion by Councilmember Sandy Brown to table it passed 4-3. Now Mayor Martine Watkins has put the censure back on the agenda for the October 8 meeting. The majority of those in attendance on September 24 were there to speak against the censure, and to support Drew Glover and Chris Krohn.

Dear Friends,

On Reconciliation, Renewal, and Re-grouping…and the Tuesday “Censure” item.

Censure. I do not believe this has any place on this or any past or future agenda. It is not warranted.

Having written that, I urge supporters of Councilmember Glover and myself to attend Tuesday's meeting with dignity and grace. I urge you to speak up and speak out about the need for reconciliation in this community. The city body politic is resilient and will get through this, but only if we choose to take a step back from our local council dais abyss and project an air of forgiveness, hope, and carry on with our active work ethic that embraces equality, social justice, equity, and fairness. We cannot now be deterred my friends. We have much work to do. Please join us on Tuesday, October 8th at 4pm (time is approximate), city council chambers 809 Center Street, and stand with the council majority that you helped elect.

BTW, it is Yom Kippur, the day of "atonement" and the meeting will definitely end before sundown, which is by 630pm.

Also, please have a read of Gillian Greensite’s piece about the Censure issue. She’s a former member of the Commission for the Prevention of Violence Against Women and currently serves on the Parks and Recreation Commission.

We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
