The Poolesville Commissioners are saddened by the news of the latest mass shooting this week in Georgia. We offer our condolences to the families of victims and the communities affected by this senseless violence. This tragedy is only the most recent incident in a disturbing trend of hate directed towards the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities across the nation. Poolesville celebrates diversity, stands strongly with the AAPI community and condemns all acts of hate, violence, and discrimination against anyone in our community. We will continue to ensure that Poolesville is a place where everyone is welcome.
