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.

Mayor Martin Responds to Email Attacks

This just in from the Greenfield Mayor's Office:

The recent spate of email attacks dispatched to various town departments related to Councilor Penny Ricketts is not only disconcerting but foreign to the community of Greenfield and will not go unchallenged. The Town of Greenfield will pursue, at any cost, individuals that attack our residents because of their race, religion, gender identity, and social and/or physical status. We will seek all legal means available to a municipality to bring criminal charges to a court for resolution. An internal investigation will continue and we will partner with other agencies for a thorough search for the parties responsible.
