FERNDALE, Wash. — An addition yesterday to today’s Finance & Administration Council Committee meeting agenda added a proposed resolution “rejecting white supremacy and establishing Ferndale as a welcoming city.”
Council committee members Keith Olson, Kate Bishop and Greg Hansen are expected to discuss the proposed resolution, recommend changes and/or decide whether to forward the resolution to the full council for further discussion and/or a vote. The next full City Council meeting is scheduled for Monday, August 19th, at 6pm.
The full text of the proposed resolution is as follows:Item-H-White-Supremacy-Resolution
City of Ferndale Communications Officer Riley Sweeney said City Council member and candidate for County Assessor Rebecca Xczar is bringing the proposed resolution to the committee members in response to a resident’s report of finding posters by a white supremacist group in the downtown Ferndale area and a social media report of someone handing out flyers in Bellingham.
The Finance and Administration Committee meets today, August 14th, in the City Hall conference room at 10am to 11am.
