Mayor Piercy works to ensure no one is blocked from City Council meetings by the county

Mayor Kitty Piercy upon hearing the trespass citations would keep people from being able to attend City Council meetings (see today's story about the recent free speech arrests) tells EW:

"You should know that it's important to me for that all our community members can come to a City Council meeting. While I respect the county's rights to make decisions regarding visitors to the county building, it's not okay with me for them to determine who may attend or speak at a council meeting.   I have asked staff to work with the county to ensure that no one is blocked from our council meetings by the county."
