This morning, the Village became aware of vandalism at an unoccupied property, this vandalism was of a racist nature. We will not give credence to this by sharing a photograph. It is deeply disturbing that this has occurred within proximity to our community, we believe we are better than this. Stamford tends to come together in times of crisis. As proud Americans the words “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal” should hold meaning, they do for the Stamford Village Mayor, and the Stamford Village Board of Trustees condemns such actions; and we ask residents to come together at this time in making it clear that we as a community do not support racial prejudice, nor will we tolerate racist actions; because our community is better than this.
