The City Council has gone on record opposing a U.S. offensive against Iraq.
The council's action makes Madison the 16th city to pass a resolution opposing a pre-emptive strike on Iraq, according to a mayoral assistant in Santa Cruz, Calif., which passed a similar resolution in late September.
Ron Schneider, assistant to Santa Cruz Mayor Christopher Krohn, said in a telephone interview Tuesday night that Baltimore, Md., and St. Petersburg, Fla., will be voting on anti-war resolutions Thursday.
