On behalf of myself and City Council, I want to wish everyone in our community a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend. May we all find the ability to focus on the blessings in our lives, our family and our friends. While we may not be able to connect physically with each other and those we care about, I hope everyone is able to take this time to connect in a meaningful way with those most important to them.
I want to recognize and thank all of the community partners who have come together, to work together, to keep our community safe and to provide for those of us who need assistance. I also want to recognize and thank all of our essential workers, from first responders, to transit operators to grocers to pharmacists to health care workers, who go to work everyday to serve our community. It has been heartening to see the tremendous care and kindness across our community. Our collective strength and resolve give me confidence that better and brighter days are ahead.
