“I firmly believe that regardless of your race, creed or gender, regardless of where you live, work or send your children to school – we all share the same wishes for the health and safety of ourselves and our family. And we all deserve the chance to discuss important and related issues in a balanced manner, with the intent of finding and sharing solutions for all.”
