Mayor Himmelrich on Today’s Events in Our Nation’s Capitol
January 6, 2021 4:33 PM
I am guessing that many of us have been glued to our televisions all day after an unprecedented scene of chaos in our nation’s capitol.
While Santa Monica embraces peaceful protests, the sort of violence we saw today is unlawful. And it is antithetical to a peaceful, democratic society.
Your City government and your City Council have remained informed and prepared for any activity in Santa Monica since yesterday, and we will remain prepared to keep you safe until the violence in other cities subside. If you have any information about a possible threat, email email@example.com.
