Read the latest statement from Mayor Brownstone regarding the events the Capitol today, January 6.
Many of us have spent today following the troubling images and news reports emanating from our nation’s Capitol. Once again this past year, we find ourselves navigating our way through multiple once-in-a-lifetime challenges.
Despite the weight of so many simultaneous challenges and events, I remain optimistic. I remain optimistic and confident because I live in Half Moon Bay. I am confident that we live in a proud and resilient community that continues to come together in the face of adversity.
We are a thoughtful community; most often characterized by our individual and collective efforts to support our neighbors during trying times. We are a community that cherishes our democratic freedoms and we believe in decency and respect for a range of differing points of view.
In Half Moon Bay, participatory democracy lives and is reflected in our strong independent press, our participation in local elections, and in our lively City Council meetings that often extend into the early morning hours (until every voice has been heard).
In Half Moon Bay, our powerful shared values enable us to stay strong through the unprecedented challenges of pandemics, fires, economic downturns and climate change. We stay strong because there isn’t anything we can’t do when we do it together.
