A Statement From City Manager Elizabeth Pauli on Mayor Victoria Woodards’ Remarks

 

“I am proud of the passion our Mayor has for our community and for the depth of empathy and support she has always shown for the oppressed and persecuted in our community, especially our Black brothers and sisters.

I love our Mayor.

I, too, love our community.

I heard, felt and support the Mayor’s endorsement of the Ellis family’s demand for more information and for action.

The Mayor is doing her job.

I am prepared to do mine to the best of my ability.

I look forward to receiving additional information from the Sheriff about this tragic event.

I will act quickly in reviewing any and all information provided and in making decisions necessary to hold individuals accountable for their actions.

I will also work closely with our City Council and the community to identify and implement the reform necessary for meaningful change.”
