Local ACLU director Ronal Madnick has had a busy last couple weeks. After quietly announcing himself as an Independent candidate for the 13th Worcester state representative seat (he’ll kick into high gear after the primaries, he said) he appeared at last week’s City Council meeting calling for 30 minute “public access open forums” before agenda items are discussed. This week he’ll approach the council with a petition calling for the city to “not participate in any business activities substantially connected with the State of Arizona and municipalities in Arizona.”
It’s gained traction, too. Rick Rushton, Joff Smith, Mike Germain and Joe O’Brien have signed on to a resolution that takes Madnick’s petition word for word, and the council will vote on it (or table it) Tuesday.
