Statement by County Executive and Mayor on Recent Violence in the Country
PITTSBURGH, PA (July 8, 2016) Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald and City of Pittsburgh Mayor William Peduto issued the following statement in response to recent reports of violence in Louisiana, Minnesota and Texas:
“Today, our nation is in mourning for the deaths of so many in our community. We are hurt, angry, confused and in pain as we struggle to cope with the violence plaguing us. Our answer to the violence in our community cannot be more violence. Pittsburgh’s strength has always been in coming together to solve issues and supporting each other in times of need. We rely on that strength and we need it now more than ever.
We have great faith that all of us – residents, communities, law enforcement, activists – have the capacity to come together to heal from our pain and anger, no matter how difficult that may be for us. We can do more to honor the lives of those who were killed by working together to stop the violence and have a more peaceful community.”
