Council to formally honor RBG

Thursday, October 8, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

Council Member Natasha Harper-Madison announced that she and Mayor Pro Tem Delia Garza would be co-sponsoring a resolution “to honor the legacy of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg” on the City Council Message Board Monday. Harper-Madison explained, “Her legacy of work in the areas of equality and social justice are unprecedented. As the ACLU of Texas tries to coordinate a statewide effort to recognize Justice Ginsburg’s contributions to advancement of equity, and to celebrate her unselfish dedication to the law, I would like our Council to resolve to publicly proclaim our commitment to protecting her legacy.” According to the resolution, also posted Monday, honoring that legacy includes asking “that the United States Senate honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dying wish that she should not be replaced until a new president is installed.” As of Wednesday night, Council members Jimmy Flannigan, Greg Casar, Alison Alter, Paige Ellis, and Kathie Tovo had also signed on as co-sponsors of the resolution.
