APPLETON, Wis. (WBAY) – An Appleton alderman says he’s been the target of harassment since voting to refer back to committee a resolution to condemn racism and anti-Asian violence tied to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Over the past few days, tensions have been high on social media between some members of the Appleton city council, and those supporting the resolution.
That led Alderman Bill Siebers to refer the item back to committee which the council supported by just one vote.
Mayor Jake Woodford says it’s disappointing the resolution wasn’t taken up, and discussed during Wednesday’s meeting.
He says doing so, is not acceptable and he’s asking people to please be respectful of the process.
