City Council approves charter change to help some public school students gain city jobs

Joe Graves, who served in the Vietnam War, was among residents voicing displeasure with the change during public testimony.

“What we should be focusing on Kensington Avenue and not changing charter bills to harm our veterans,” Graves said.

Councilmember Katherine Gilmore Richardson said an amendment to the bill is designed so the preference can’t be used against veterans.

“And I want to be clear, the veterans asked me to amend this bill to ensure that if a veteran and a CTE student are up for the same job, that the CTE student cannot use the preference,” Gilmore Richardson said.
