Statement from Mayor Yvonne M. Spicer on Capitol Mayhem

Statement from Mayor Yvonne M. Spicer on Capitol Mayhem

Like many of my colleagues around the country, I was horrified and outraged about the mayhem that occurred on Capitol Hill yesterday. It is unconscionable that our Capitol building was under siege, and I denounce the assault. My heart goes out to those families that lost loved ones yesterday and those injured in the upheaval.

I applaud our Senators and congressional leaders for moving forward with the business at hand in certifying the electoral college votes for President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris. It is taking care of the people’s trust in them and fulfilling their elected responsibilities. We are better than this as a nation.

The United States of America is built upon the Constitution, and we can’t trample over that document. As elected leaders, we took an oath to uphold the Constitution, and it is a sad day when the occupant of the highest office chooses to dishonor this covenant. We have an opportunity to do better to resolve conflict peacefully with an understanding that democracy must prevail.
