Our hearts are broken because of the murder in Charlottesville. But had the “Unite the Right” events in Charlottesville not resulted in the murder of an innocent woman, it still would have been a heart-breaking celebration of backward thinking hatemongers who wish to return to days where people could beat and murder others because of their race, religion, sexual orientation, or other distinguishing features without concern that the law will bring them to justice.
We thank our leaders for speaking out against their hatred and promising to resist all attempts to return to those unfortunate times.
The Suffolk Democratic Committee will be at Taste of Suffolk again this year. Enjoy the entertainment, attractions, and the samples of great food that our restaurants in Suffolk have to offer. And while you’re there, look for us to get information about voting, voting rights, issues, and candidates in the upcoming elections. We’d love to see you.
