Council President Stands Up to Hate

This just in from a Greenfield City Council press release:

To the citizens of Greenfield, from City Council President Brickett Allis:  I am very dismayed and upset at the recent attacks on members of our city council.  Greenfield is a wonderful community and it is unfortunate this type of hateful dialogue is happening here.

As a public servant, I have an even greater responsibility to speak out against discrimination and hatred where all human rights are threatened. It is up to all of us to denounce these acts of cowardice and juvenility with our kindness and our unity with those who find themselves targeted and victimized by it. There is no room in our community for acts of hate perpetrated by anyone.
