Statement from Mayor Gavin Buckley
Annapolis, MD (6-22-18) – From Annapolis City Mayor Gavin Buckley:
Our hearts go out to the family, friends, and coworkers of the victims of today’s tragedy at The Capital Gazette offices. We know these reporters very well. We speak with them daily. The Capital is one of the oldest papers in our country and they have been part of the fabric of our city for centuries. Our first responders deal with these journalists too. This is our family and today’s victims were our friends.. Today’s tragedy will not be the new normal for our city, county, state or country.
I would like to commend the work of our first responder professionals and our Emergency Operations Center staff for their excellent work today and teamwork with Anne Arundel County and our state and federal partners.
