Maricopa mayor, councilmembers denounce ‘hate’ in wake of Charlottesville

By Mason Callejas | inMaricopa

Members of the Maricopa City Council and local clergy offered their thoughts and condolences Tuesday to those affected by the violence that erupted over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, after a clash between white supremacists and counter-protestors turned violent, claiming the life of one counter-protestor.

During a regular meeting of the council, the speakers acknowledge the tragedy that occurred when counter-protestors challenged the “alt-right” demonstrators in the streets of Charlottesville Aug. 12, and one white nationalist, drove his car into the crowd killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injuring 19 others.

During his invocation, Family Life Pastor Ben Gores from the Maricopa Church of Celebration recognized the impact the incident had on the state of socio-political affairs in the country.
