WORTHINGTON — About 25 local residents attended the regular Worthington City Council meeting Monday night to participate in a political demonstration.

The group did not disturb the council proceedings, but displayed signs that invited council members to pay attention to issues that affect people of color.

"This is a public meeting, so we feel like we're allowed to be here," Aida Simon told the council when Mayor Mike Kuhle inquired about the group's intentions. "We just want to see how you're going to represent us."

Following the meeting, City Administrator Steve Robinson invited representatives from the group to contact him and explain their concerns.

"I am interested to hear what you have to say," Robinson said.
