HCDP Chair Tim Burke's Statement on the events weekend in Charlottesville VA.
The Hamilton County Democratic Party shares in the sorrow of Charlottesville over the madness and hate that lead to the death of Heather Heyer, the injury of so many and the loss of police officers H. Jay Cullen and Berke M.M. Bates who died in a helicopter crash as they were responding to the crisis in the City.
Charlottesville is to be commended for addressing the long standing indignity of maintaining public parks celebrating the confederacy as are those who stood up against the hatred and violence of the white supremacists who sought to block that progress.
Both political parties and all our elected officials, including the President, must speak out clearly in opposition to the racial hatred that triggered the Charlottesville violence.
