Roseville Rewind: A Marriage Amendment Resolution and Hockey Coach Rally
A look back at some of the top news of the past week in Roseville.
About 100 people came to a rally at Roseville Area High School last Tuesday evening to support former boys head hockey coach Jeff Pauletti, a week after he resigned in order to speak candidly about allegations that he had bullied his players.
That was among the events of the past week that were highlights of Roseville Patch's news coverage.
Pauletti was among the speakers at the rally and talked positively about the role coaches, teachers and staff play in the schools. If you missed our coverage, here is the link to he story: http://roseville.patch.com/articles/about-100-rally-in-support-of-roseville-hockey-coach#photo-9944743.
In other news, the Roseville Human Rights Commission on Wednesday, May 16, passed resolution opposing the proposed Minnesota constitutional Marriage Amendment.
In their resolution, the commissioners said they are urging voters to cast a No vote on the ballot, contending that if the measure is approved it "would have a direct negative impact on Roseville's community." Specifically, the commissoners asserted the Marriage Amendment would "deny equal protection of the law to certain families, decrease the sense of communtiy and will not ensure that our city government and its activities, programs and services are accessible, understandable and responsive to all."
