The May 16 @CityofWheeling #CityCouncil meeting was unlike any other, due in large part to it's high attendance. Many came out in support of the LGBTQ+ and the upcoming Pride on the Plaza event. More than 60 people filled the chambers. Here's what you missed:

1/ The City Council Chambers o...
Former state Sen Owens Brown was present, as well as current Delegate @WVUFLU. Del Fluharty, on entering the room, said "I heard something big was happening. Did I miss anything?" Something big indeed happened--an outpouring of support for #LGBTQ+ people #folkreporters

The Friendlier City Project, a Wheeling non-profit with the mission to build and foster a thriving #LGBTQ+ community, asked supporters to come out in support of the June 10 Pride on the Plaza event. This was to rebuke a woman who speaks against LGBTQ+ people often.

THREAD: Wheeling City Council Holds Contentious Meeting— Resolution Re-Affirming the Civil Rights of Wheeling Residents rejected 3-3. Here are the highlights.

If you like my reporting check out the full article here:…

I WILL BE GOING OUT OF CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER. Spiciest stuff first. Before we start- 1) security checks were held, 2) @MayorWheeling was absent, 3) out of the three meetings I’ve reported on not ONE has had full attendance of the #citycouncil. Roughly 20 citizens in attendance
A Resolution to Re-Affirm the civil rights of Wheeling residents was offered. This is in response to the WV Leg passing HB 3042, RFRA. Councilor @benseidler spoke in opposition, upset that the resolution was “dropped in our laps” 24 hours ago.

1/Who is the @AAUW and why is the candidate questionnaire from @NapervilleAAUW important to the upcoming municipal elections for #mayor and #citycouncil in #naperville?
2/AAUW stands for American Association of University Women, which was founded in 1881 by a small group of female college graduates focused on opening doors for women’s career advancement & to encourage more women to pursue higher education
3/The AAUW is a contemporary of Naperville itself… Joseph Naper is credited with founding Naperville along the DuPage River in 1831 & was elected the president of the board when the village of Naperville was incorporated in 1857. Naperville organized as a city in 1890

1/Several campaigns for municipal positions (#mayor, #citycouncil) in #Naperville are hyping rising #crime as the #1 issue. Their platforms are a solution in search of a problem. The assertion that crime is rising or prevalent in Naperville is simply NOT TRUE.
2/About to drop some stats but 1st some context for the numbers. In mid ‘21, @NapervillePD converted to a new crime data reporting system (NIBRS replaced UCR) per federal mandate. NIBRS is more comprehensive: counts up to 10 offenses per incident vs only the most serious offense;
3/in many categories NIBRS tracks the number of victims vs incidents; some crime definitions changed; NIBRS counts attempted crimes not just completed crimes. As a result, pre-July 2021 data is not comparable to post-July 2021 data and NIBRS is more encompassing (ie higher count)

The @CityofWheeling #CityCouncil held its second and final meeting today, February 21, 2023! I report as a #folkreporter independently for the Hudson Household Editorial. This thread was made using @FolkReporters | @BlackByGodWV thread guide!

First thing to note: admittance to the City-County building often involves removing your belongings to be scanned, and walking through a medal detector. I was informed by an officer “no one is at post,” and this safety check was not conducted.

In attendance were Mayor Elliot @MayorWheeling, Rep Thalman @ViceMayorWhg, Rep @RosemaryKetchum, Rep Sklavounakis, and Rep Palmer. Rep @benseidler and Rep @t_thorngate were absent.

The @CityofWheeling held its third #CityCouncil meeting today, Tuesday, February 7, 2023, at 5:30 PM. This thread details what I witnessed. I reported on the meeting as a citizen journalist, and I am using @BlackByGodWV @FolkReporters thread guide to compose this!

First, in my estimation there were roughly 30 people in attendance, including members of the public, city government officials, and media. Apart from myself there was no masking. There appeared to me no COVID-19 safety precautions in place, there was space for some distancing

3rd Ward Rep. @RosemaryKetchum opened the meeting with a prayer, followed by a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance. City Clerk Brenda Delbert called the roll. In attendance were @MayorWheeling, @ViceMayorWhg and 1st Ward Rep. Chad Thalman, 2nd Ward Rep. @benseidler,

1)THREAD: Here are some quotes and facts I shared during my #citycouncil #educationhearing testimony in favor of a SAFE reopening plan: @Zeke_Cohen @CouncilmanKB @Porter4Bmore @TonyGlover13 @TheRobertStokes @JamesTorrenceJD @CouncilmanETC @docbullock @odetteramos @CCMiddleton6
2)As teachers, we want schools buildings to be fully reopened, but not if we are jeopardizing the lives and economic stability of our kids. To avoid this harm, it is CRUCIAL that @baltcityschools commit to the following basic protections and requests from @BTUBaltimore.
3) DEMAND #1: City Schools staff are fully vaccinated before returning to their facility (both doses and waiting period to reach full efficacy);

A late start tweeting the #RedondoBeach #CityCouncil meeting, but let's get caught up.

First things, approval of the consent calendar didn't finish until an hour into the meeting. As @BillBrandRB noted, it usually only takes five minutes. At a glance...
Beyond the standard approval of payroll and paychecks, RBCC approved work donations by prospective Eagle Scouts. There was also an item a feasibility report for installing solar energy at the @RedondoBeachPAC (I did miss that for the sake of coffee. My fault there.)
Things took a turn when Council pulled its social host ordinance for a second read. Councilman Loewenstein (@todd4rbcouncil) wasn't present for the first read, and had a few concerns.
