GB City Council to consider resolution in support of Jerry Kramer


Righting a wrong is always a noble act, even if unsuccessful.

When it comes to the Green Bay City Council, their task of considering the passage of a resolution to encourage the induction of former Packers right guard Jerry Kramer into the National Football League’s Hall of Fame. It is the right thing to do and aldermen will talk about it this coming Tuesday night.

The push to get Kramer into the Hall has become a Twitter and Facebook phenomena this past year – as it should be. So many are remembering the man who helped anchor an offensive line with names that conjure big plays, the Packers sweep, and Bart Starr’s sneak into immortality.

Kramer was elected to the all-NFL first 50 year team. He’s the only player from the select group not in the Hall of Fame. For those who cast the votes to ignore the importance of career is not just sad, it’s downright criminal.

How much weight the city council carries is not known, but it’s important for them to get on the Kramer train and their vote should be a help.

The 12-member City Council will consider passing the resolution during a meeting that starts at 7 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 100 N. Jefferson St.
