WATCH: Despite Citizen Input, City Council Votes to Delay Sanctuary City Ballot Issue Until November


SAN ANGELO – The San Angelo City Council Tuesday voted 4 to 1 to hold a public hearing on the Sanctuary City for the Unborn ballot initiative on March 1, 2022 pushing the ballot back from May to November.  

A group of citizens had duly gathered the required number of signatures for a legal petition for the council to consider the Sanctuary City issue.  The petition was certified and organizers requested the issue be placed on the ballot as soon as possible.  

The council voted against the group's request after public comment.

The City Council will hold a public hearing on the Sanctuary City for the Unborn ballot initiative at the regular council meeting March1, 2022.  The council could accept the petition and adopt an ordinance  designating the city a Sanctuary City for the Unborn or the council could amend the ordinance or reject it.  

If the city rejects the proposed ordinance, the committee can request it be placed on the ballot.  Mayor Gunter indicated the measure would be placed on the ballot in November instead of May delaying the action further.
