City council in Worcester
I removed this sentence from the introduction, "On Tuesday, September 10th 2008, a city councilor in Worcester called for a vote on a measure to express the opposition by the city of Worcester to the initiative. The city council rejected the measure by a 10-1 vote, with the only vote for the measure coming from the councilor that requested the vote." after reading a newspaper report about the vote that says this, "...the vote was merely procedural. District 4 Councilor Barbara B. Haller did ask the council to vote in opposition to the ballot question, but District 5 Councilor William J. Eddy noted that Ms. Haller’s proposal was out of order because Question 2 was not an issue that was under the supervision of the local government.". Rintintin 12:56, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
- Please address the concern/perspective brought up in the Worcester paper before re-inserting the sentence about the city's deliberations on this. It appears that they believe the claim lacks a key element of perspective or context. If that perspective or context is included with the claim, that's different.
