UPDATE: Mayor Kim Bracey spoke Wednesday night about her opinion on President Barack Obama’s proposals to help curb gun violence.
Bracey, in Washington, D.C., for a mayors’ conference, said she likes what she’s heard so far from Obama’s proposal. The president is pushing the sort of common-sense solutions that the country needs, Bracey said.
“He’s heard our cry,” she said, referring to the mayors group. “He’s heard America’s cry, and he’s responding.”
Bracey said she participated in a daylong series of events with the group Mayors Against Illegal Guns. It’s a cause she believes in, and a message that needs to be heard, she said.
“We’ve seen homicides. We’ve seen these (assault) weapons being used senselessly,” she said. “We hope for change. We hope people hear us talking.”
PREVIOUS: Maybe you saw this post on Mayor Kim Bracey going to Washington.
I still haven’t heard back from the mayor on how her week is going.
According to the mayors group, Bracey will be among those at 5:30 p.m. today to respond to the White House announcement. Others listed on a news release include the mayor of Minneapolis, the mayor of Golden, Colo., and a survivor of the Aurora, Colo., theater shooting.
Bracey’s exact role wasn’t clear and she didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment, nor did an event organizer immediately respond to a request for more information.
