Cieslewicz and the city council implemented a citywide smoking ban, that prohibited smoking in any public space, including bars and taverns. The ban went into effect in July 2005.
He is a member of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns Coalition, a bi-partisan group with a stated goal of “making the public safer by getting illegal guns off the streets.” The Coalition is co-chaired by Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Cieslewicz has also launched the New Cities Project, an organization of mayors and chiefs of staff dedicated to fostering progressive metropolitan leadership.
I extended the quotes just a little bit to show that not only is he a gun-banner, but anti freedom (banning the legal activity of smoking on private property) and a self-proclaimed “Progressive”.
Gun Control is a fringe ideology! And it turns out they only do what they do because they’re being paid to do it.
