Commission for the Prevention of Violence Against Women Strays from its Charge (video/mp4 35.6MB)
Gillian Greensite, the co-founder of the Commission for the Prevention of Violence Against Women (CPVAW), and it's first Chair, spoke to the Santa Cruz city Council on October 8 about how the Commission has strayed outside of its original charge, of "sexual harassment, rape, and domestic violence," when it moved to endorse a censure of Councilmembers Chris Krohn and Drew Glover. Greensite added, "I have no doubt that the complaints that the women brought forward [against Glover and Krohn] wer...

At the 10-8 City Council meeting, Mayor Watkins gave staff the usual expansive and unnecessary presentation time for prior items. She then eliminated group presentation time on the pointlessly returned censure of Krohn/Glover item. Initially refusing again to recognize a Councilmember, she again tried to hide behind the City Attorney as back-up. Failing this she cut back public comment time severely, allowing a special favored group presentation by the discredited City Commission for the P...
