A Statement from the Mayor and Vice Mayor

As members of the Tiburon Town Council, as a community, we are all appalled at the images of the death of George Floyd who took his last breath with a police officer’s knee on his neck.

We have taken steps to create awareness on issues of racism. The Town Council previously passed a resolution in November 2018 supporting diversity and stating discrimination will not be tolerated. The Council has asked Tiburon Police Chief Cronin to provide information about police training and practices to ensure that our officers are protecting and serving in safe and respectful ways. The Police Department will put a weblink to their program on the Town’s website by the end of the week.

However, those images of George Floyd and those of police action nationwide against protesters underscore the need that we all find a faster track to get rid of racism.

We will work to make change a reality and are thankful for the participation of the entire community as we redouble efforts. Together we stand to speak out, to energize our own community to act, to eradicate institutional and systemic racism in our community and in all levels of government. Every step counts.

The Council is thankful to those who have communicated with us, and we invite your continued input. What do you see as needed immediate change? What actions do you see local government taking that effectively address needed change? What can we take on as a community to shift structural racism? 

Please talk to us. We want to hear your voice. Contact information for the Town Council is available here.

Alice Fredericks, Mayor

Holli P. Thier, J.D., Vice Mayor
