All the members of the Greenburgh Town Board share the disgust at the senseless and unjustified killing of George Floyd and other African American men and women in our country. We condemn these unjustified killings and support those who are expressing their outrage.
At the Greenburgh Town Board meeting on Wednesday night (video below)  we began our meeting with a memorial to George Floyd. We shared some photos of protests that were held in Greenburgh throughout the town---on  Manhattan Ave, in  North Elmsford, Edgemont, Hastings, Dobbs Ferry, Irvington, Tarrytown and Ardsley during recent days. Thousands of Greenburgh residents expressed their feelings.
Sean Fedeli, a 6 year old from Edgemont, spoke eloquently about the protest he organized on Saturday and why this cause is so important to him.  Jordan Williams, a Junior at Valhalla High School and a resident of Greenburgh read a poem and highlighted her thoughts about this moment in history.  Chief Brian Ryan of the Greenburgh Police department shared his departments anger at what happened to George Floyd.
We must all work harder to end racism in our country. Black lives matter.
