Geneva City Councilor Bill Pealer has been censured.
It went down as a 6-2 vote with Mayor Steve Valentino and Pealer himself being the only to opposing votes.
Several speakers voiced concern about his activity on social media, pointing to Twitter posts about the LGBTQ+ community.
Some speakers even called for him to resign.
Pealer argued that he was commenting on a national news story, not directing any remarks toward local residents. “This is a political attack, this has always been a political attack,” he added.
