Waterloo’s ‘ban the box’ remains untouched after effort to rescind

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

WATERLOO, Iowa (KWWL) - Ward 1 Councilperson Margaret Klein made the initiative to "rescind" or revoke the vote to pass 'ban the box', but no other council members backed her.

Klein says she was promised a second from another councilperson to bring the rescinding to the table for discussion, saying this specific person, "stepped out of politics."

Klein says the day before Monday's city council meeting that councilperson changed their mind after speaking with other council members.

In Monday's meeting Klein did not get a second, and the discussion on rescinding 'ban the box' never reached the table.

Klein is the sole remaining member on the council who was against voting in favor of banning the box.
