Ann Arbor City Council Meeting Summary

APPROVED: A resolution calling on corporations to align their publicly stated values with their corporate political spending. This is in response to the hypocrisy of corporate entities that profess support for democracy and racial justice while funding legislators who work against those values. The City Administrator is directed to report on the feasibility of including an evaluation of a potential vendor’s political activities in the City’s procurement policies. By friendly amendment, this resolution asked that the report be provided to Council on or before the second meeting in January 2023. (Legistar)
