Mayor Phillips wrote a statement on Facebook. Here is just a segment of that statement:
My heart is heavy for Mr. George Floyd, his family, and all our brothers, sisters, and neighbors of color throughout this land. Campbell is a small town, and incredibly diverse, yet I am not so blind to understand that inequity exists everywhere, even here. We need to pray for each other, support each other, take time to understand each other. I applaud our neighbors in Youngstown for publicly having those hard conversations today.Mayor Nick Phillips
