The Greenfield Common Council voted 3-2 Tuesday night against a restrictive sex offender ordinance. Here are details from jsonline and GreenfieldNOW.
No surprise, Alderman Tom Pietrowski voted against the measure. He hasn’t hid his deep concern for sex offenders as opposed to the innocent children in his district. Alderman Shirley Saryan also voted against the proposed ordinance. I wrote about Saryan on a blog after attending a previous committee meeting she chaired on this issue:
“As I was leaving the meeting and waved goodbye to committee members and thanking them for having their discussion, Alderman Saryan made it a point to tell me publicly from her committee chair position that, ‘Just because I ask questions’ doesn’t mean that I’ve taken a position one way or the other. In a recent blog on this issue, I wrote, ‘Greenfield Alderman Shirley Saryan doesn’t sound too promising when she admits she’s confused by Franklin’s ordinances.’ During tonight’s meeting, Saryan noted she reads my blog. I appreciate that, Alderman.”
But don’t try to snow me. I think her mind was made up against this proposal a long time ago.
A Greenfield resident sent me an e-mail today:
“Sex offenders for miles around are lining up at the border….it’s going to be like the Oklahoma land rush of 1889.”
Greenfield parents, do not forget this vote.
