Elmhurst Community Members,
Our nation is deeply disturbed by senseless acts of hate and violence.
We are united in knowing that the murder of George Floyd was heinous and wrong.
As we mourn the loss of a human life, our society must end these acts of violence and hate.
One of our core services is to provide safety for the Elmhurst residents and the community. We work diligently to maintain order and improve your quality of life. Under no circumstances do we tolerate violence, hate, racism or discrimination of any kind.
We are supportive of individuals who peacefully assemble to express their beliefs. We will never lose sight of this. The unfortunate reality is that we are seeing peaceful assemblies turn into targeted areas for civil unrest around the nation. We ask that you understand our primary goal is keeping our community safe and maintaining order.
As your Mayor, I ask that we focus on our community values of respect and equality in a peaceful manner.
Steve Morley, Mayor of the City of Elmhurst
