BAYONNE, NJ – Mayor James Davis, Assemblyman Nicholas Chiaravalloti and Freeholder Kenneth Kopacz issued a joint statement on June 15 regarding the shooting that took place in Orlando, Fla. on Sunday, June 12 that left 49 dead and more than 50 wounded.

The statement reads:

“Today we join together to mourn the loss of 49 of our fellow Americans who perished in the brutal attack that took place this past weekend in Orlando, Florida. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends, families and loved ones of the victims.

Additionally, we hope the very best for a speedy, effective recovery for the over 50 individuals who were left wounded by the events that unfolded early Sunday morning.

It is apparent that this attack was targeted to especially affect the LGBT community. This is especially egregious – because we as Americans, and we as elected officials – stand for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in all of its forms; without bias toward race, creed or sexual orientation.

We condemn these attacks and have faith that the resiliency of the American people will comfort the victims of this attack, and unify our communities against the evils that face us.”

Davis has also ordered that the Rainbow Flag be flown at Bayonne City Hall until the close of business on Friday, June 17.
