Law | Wilmington, DE Mayor Bans Smoking

The city council of Wilmington, DE is supposed to represent the people, as is the Mayor. However, the Mayor chose to act against the will of the people as he passed a ban that prohibits smoking at the bus stops and playgrounds in the city.

In early October, the city council voted against instituting such a ban by a 6-5 margin, the proposal included designated areas in parks to light up. The measure that the Mayor signed in an executive order, does not include designated areas.

So much for listening to the people, and being a Democratic society. The law goes into effect immediately.

Wilmington, Delaware is home to 71,000 residents over 17 square miles and was founded in 1638.
