Following last week’s unfortunate incident surrounding the former Mayor’s resignation and arrest, the last few days have been challenging for members of our community.
The community is processing so many emotions at the same time. For many, these emotions range from sadness to shock, betrayal and even anger. When residents elect someone to an office, they expect high standards from that elected official, and when these standards are not upheld, residents are understandably left with these feelings.
That said, please note that our community of 32,000 is more than one person, and your caring neighbors, trusted City Council, and capable City staff support you all.
Sharing your emotions and feelings with your loved ones may help to heal and get through this challenging situation. I am also available if you want to chat with me to help relieve your difficult emotions.
Thank you, and please take care!
