Huge Crowds for Welcoming Cities Resolution

February 8, 2017 by pegjohnston

Councilman Conrad Taylor introduced a “Welcoming Cities” Resolution to Binghamton's City Council and a huge crowd (The Press estimated 100) came out to support the resolution.  It is a statement of welcome and support for the immigrants and refugees who live in our community. People were urged by Citizens Action and other groups to contact their council members and the Mayor. Mary Kaminsky introduced a similar resolution to the County Legislature.

Taylor was accused of "grandstanding" by other Council members and several members said that the resolution needed revising. The resolution was tabled to work on the wording that Council member Dani Cronce (D) and others objected to. Only one person spoke out against the resolution. City Council next meets Feb. 21.
