County Solidarity Message from Charles McKee

Post Date:06/11/2020 11:38 AM

MONTEREY COUNTY
June 3, 2020

Dear County Employees,

The recent events across our nation have impacted many individuals but especially our African American community. We must stand together to eliminate racial injustice, discrimination, and condemn behavior that erodes our civil liberties. The Board of Supervisors, County Administrative Officer and all Department Heads are committed to protecting the rights of all individuals in the County.

We condemn the action of the officers involved in the recent death of George Floyd. The behaviors exhibited by these officers should not be tolerated by any law enforcement or governmental agency. We stand united with individuals who are lawfully demonstrating and peacefully protesting the injustice and senseless killing of George Floyd and others. It is up to us, to be the change we want to see, to be part of the solution, and to work towards a better future for all.

County leadership is committed to ensuring that all employees and members of the public are treated fairly, equitably, and free from discrimination and social injustice.

We Stand Together,
