We are deeply saddened by the tragic death of Mr. George Floyd. May he rest in peace. Our hearts and condolences go out to the family of Mr. Floyd and for all mourning this tragedy as we are. Our City Government and Police Department remain committed to our values of defending our Constitution and our people’s 1st Amendment right of free speech and right to peaceably assemble. We remain committed to upholding the law and to the principle of equal justice. We remain committed to protecting our community and keeping all safe. We continue to and always will reject all forms of racism, bigotry and hate. We stand with those who want peace and justice for all and reject those promoting or acting in violence against our fellow man/woman and their businesses and property. We hope to be part of the national dialogue of improving peace and justice and finding solutions to bring all communities together, while continuing to foster positive relationships between our Community and our Police and City Government. We urge calm and restraint from all, and invite those seeking change to engage in productive dialogue with us about how we can improve our society together. We need to come together as a people and create a better more unified future. May Mr. Floyd rest in peace, and again we express our deep condolences to his family. We pray that such tragedies will not occur again.
