Today, Mayor John Eberhart along with City Employees, grieve with the nation.
Mayor Eberhart stated, “The events in Orlando were tragic and heartbreaking. The residents of our Golden Heart City join the nation in mourning the senseless loss of lives.” Hate and violence based on race, ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation have no place in our nation. However, in this time of deep sorrow, let us keep in mind the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Mayor Eberhart would also like to extend his appreciation to the residents of our community who appeared at the vigil last evening.
