Worcester City Council and Nuclear Disarmament?
What is the purpose of the City Council?
Worcester District 1 City Councilor sparked conversation by introducing a resolution that read in part;
“That the City Council of the City of Worcester does hereby call upon our federal leaders and our nation to make nuclear disarmament the centerpiece of our national security policy and join the global effort to prevent nuclear war, as outlined in the Back from the Brink campaign…”
The resolution passed by a 6-5 vote of the City Council. No one voted against it but five City Councilors abstained or voted Present because they felt the issue was out of the purview of the Council. Councilor Rose joined Talk of the Commonwealth to explain why he brought it forward.
