DENVER — The Denver City Council on Monday rejected a proposal to call for a “cease-fire” in the Israel-Hamas war, with some in the majority calling it a disservice to the city’s Jewish population and a divisive proclamation.
The council rejected the proposal, with eight voting no and four supporting it.
Some councilmembers who voted no said they were confused by the need for such a proclamation.
“This proclamation will not get us to where folks think it will,” said District 9 Councilmember Darrell Watson.
District 2 Councilmember Kevin Flynn, who also voted no, said a proclamation won’t affect the ongoing efforts toward a cease-fire in the Middle East.
