Mayor Goodman’s Statement On Orlando Shooting

Written by The Center on . Posted in News

“On Sunday, I contacted Mayor Buddy Dyer of Orlando to express our deepest sympathies and support from Las Vegas. In a similar way, I attended the vigil Sunday night in downtown Las Vegas to remember the victims and to support the LGBTQ community. While I have been a longtime supporter of banning assault weapons, the vigil was not the time or the place for political argument or discussion. I wanted to honor those we lost. As we did following September 11, our nation will pull together after this horrendous tragedy, and working with law enforcement, I know hate will never triumph.”

— Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman
