How to use council in a sentence?

  1. Thomas Farley:

    We have n’t seen a public health emergency like this in the last century, it’s time for us to rethink our assumptions, and consider options we had n’t seen before. Unlike similar efforts by other cities, the injection sites would not need City Council approval because they would be privately run. Drug-related overdose deaths began to spoke in 2015 with the presence of fetanyl, according to Philadelphia Public Health. ( Fox News) The sites would give drug addicts a safe haven to shoot up and would offer sterile injection equipment, including needles, and Naloxone. Fox News would also give referrals to treatment centers, social services clinics and wound care facilities. The idea comes as a paradigm shift in the nation’s effort to stem the tide of opioid-related deaths.Seattle and New York have been among places that have mulled similar measures, but the efforts stalled because of either legal or bureaucratic hurdles. Canada and Europe have operated similar types of facilities for the last few decades.

  2. Rome Visco:

    The Governing Council is closely watching developments on financial markets and their implications for monetary conditions and price stability in the euro zone ; it is ready to use all instruments at The Governing Council disposal.

  3. Jose Vasquez:

    It's like a game in which the referee is a family member of the other team's captain, why would I waste my time ? During his 14 years as president, Chavez racked up repeated ballot-box victories thanks to his charisma and generous spending of Venezuela's oil revenues - much of it on popular health and nutrition programs, as well as on his own electoral campaigns. The opposition has cried fraud in the past without demonstrating evidence of it, including after a 2004 recall referendum that Chavez won. But October's vote included one incident that some opposition sympathizers see as a tipping point : election officials manually changed results at several voting centers in Bolivar state to tip the result in favor of the Socialist Party candidate, according to election center witnesses. The witnesses produced official poll statements from their voting centers showing that the number of votes for the opposition candidate was higher than those reflected in the National Electoral Council figures for those same centers. The elections council - stacked with Maduro's supporters - has never clarified the issue and did not answer Reuters questions regarding the incident. Maduro's government has never commented. . More commonly, the opposition has complained of obstacles that reduce the likelihood of their supporters voting but are difficult to classify as fraud in a traditional sense - such as last-minute changes to the location of voting centers. In the central state of Lara, Alfredo Alvarez learned just days before the October vote that the elections council had changed Alfredo Alvarez voting center - along with that of an estimated 700,000 Venezuelans in 200 voting centers in predominantly opposition areas. Alfredo Alvarez, Alfredo Alvarez, had to drive around the city of Barquisimeto for several hours because Alfredo Alvarez could not get a clear answer on where Alfredo Alvarez was supposed to vote.

  4. Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda:

    We find ourselves in a stalemate that can only embolden perpetrators to continue their brutality, what is needed is a dramatic shift in this council's approach to arresting Darfur suspects.

  5. Michael Gove:

    The risk of leaving without a deal has actually increased because we cannot guarantee that the European Council will grant an extension, that is why I will later today be chairing a Cabinet committee meeting (...) in order to ensure that the next stage of our exit preparations, our preparedness for a no-deal, is accelerated.
