Mayor's Message - COVID 19

A Mayor’s Hope

We are facing a  test. Our way of life here is being disrupted in ways that we have not experienced before. Our deeply social and cooperative activities are being challenged by an invisible threat that has given rise to unprecedented government regulations, shortages of some essential goods and personal fears for our own safety. Perhaps the biggest challenge  many of us face is the disruption to our incomes and our local economy. 

I remember the local social and economic upheavals after September 11, 2001 and the recession that followed, as well as the many years spent recovering from the Great Recession of 2008-13. Add to these the many personal stories of setbacks to health, wealth or housing.

What has given me the greatest hope at this time is how we have handled past challenges. Through the grace of enhanced volunteerism to the financial contributions from our highly philanthropic neighbors and creative service organizations, we have overcome many problems and created a stronger and more caring community.
