The Mayor’s statement on the George Floyd killing posted on the City web site a few days ago appeared in the Morning Call and on WFMZ today.
Today’s statement is the same as the original on the web site except that a quote from John F. Kennedy replaces one from Ben Franklin toward the end of the essay:
“John F. Kennedy once said, ‘The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality.’ This is indeed a time of great moral crisis, and we can no longer say it doesn’t affect me — because it does.”
