Community Forum on Racism
Mayor Ted Brennan, Councilman Andy McLoone and Chief of Police, Rich Grassia, Jr., posted a statement on the municipal website on Friday, June 5th, expressing their sadness about national events that have unfolded in over the past two weeks and, their commitment to lines of open communication about systemic racism. As a first step, these community leaders, along with other community, educational and religious representatives will host a forum in Wellwood Park on Tuesday, June 16th, at 7:00 p.m. to discuss these issues and learn how we can all do better. Wellwood Park is located between West Maple and Myrtle Avenues just past the Browning Road intersection. The public is requested to bring a chair or blanket, wear a face covering and maintain social distancing.
