End of Columbus curfew

https://www.nbc4i.com/news/local-news/mayor-ginther-rescinds-columbus-curfew-order/
After consultation with Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein, Mayor Andrew J. Ginther will rescind the emergency order which established a 10 p.m. curfew.

I am pleased that in recent days there has been better communication and greater collaboration between police and protestors, demonstrations have been peaceful, and there have not been any significant acts of violence, vandalism or use of force by police, said Mayor Ginther. I applaud all those who are raising their voices in protest and encourage all to continue to do so peacefully.

A lawsuit filed in federal court last night argued that continuation of the curfew violated the U.S. Constitution because the widespread acts of vandalism have dissipated. Parties will move to dismiss the lawsuit per an agreement reached between the City and the plaintiffs involved.

The curfew in place since May 30 will be lifted immediately upon rescinding the declaration. Columbus residents may move about freely and businesses may resume normal hours of operation.

You see the recall efforts on Mayor no spine?

2. He's not my mayor--I'm suburban

But he does seem to be out of his depth. He'd better get that citizen's review board of the police going if he's going to last, tho.

3. I've dreamt of his recall since his inauguration.

The guy is worthless.

4. I wonder I'd Council Pres Hardin or Boyce go at him if he is not recalled.

Both sides really pissed.

5. Boyce probably would stand a better shot, IMO.

Though either one of them would be an improvement. In the primary, instead of voting for the unopposed Ginther, I wrote in Need better choice. 😂
