(Councilmembers) Capitelli and Olds have introduced a new resolution that will modify those passed last Tuesday, Capitelli said.
The new resolution will rescind the recommendation in the original item that asks the city manager to send letters to the recruiters saying they're unwelcome, Capitelli said.
This item comes after nationwide response against the city's original resolutions. This includes United States Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., saying he will introduce legislation to strip $2.3 million in earmarked spending for at least six Berkeley projects from a Senate appropriations bill.
In response, Mayor Tom Bates issued a statement Friday saying that the city's opposition to the center did not mean the city failed to support servicemen.
So how exactly, Mr. Mayor, does the city support servicemembers? How do the city's recent actions support servicemembers?
That mayor is an ass. Not a very logical thinker, either.
