The Madison Common Council meeting on June 2, reflected the turmoil and urgency that have characterized the year 2020 so far. Meeting electronically to limit exposure to the COVID-19 virus, Madison’s governing body first took up the issue of whether or not to extend the emergency curfews imposed by Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway. The mayor had imposed downtown curfews in response to chaos that erupted in the city after peaceful protests against police violence. The motion to extend the curfew failed on a 9-9 vote, ending the curfews immediately. Later in the evening, council members also introduced resolutions to make good on a promise years in the making: the establishment of an independent auditor and a civilian oversight board to act as a watchdog, and a check, of the Madison Police Department. But will the proposed Auditor and Civilian Oversight Board perform as hoped? Madison Sixth District Alder Marsha Rummel joined Monday Buzz host Brian Standing on June 8, 2020.
