McCollum: Let's Stay United
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) issued the following statement today:
“I am so grateful to all my constituents in St. Paul and in Ramsey County and Washington County who honored last night’s curfew and stayed home. You created the space for St. Paul Police, State Troopers, and our Minnesota National Guard to keep our streets and communities safe and peaceful. We are a strong community that values the lives, livelihoods, and rights of all our families and residents. We must continue to stand united.
“In the days ahead, let us remain vigilant. Please stay home tonight and stay safe. The COVID-19 health crisis is not over and it continues to threaten vulnerable people, requiring all of us to protect ourselves and others.
“The challenges facing us right now may seem overwhelming. Take care of yourselves, your families, your friends, and your neighbors. By staying united as Minnesotans, we will heal, we will rebuild, we will find solutions to difficult problems, and we will persevere. Please stay home tonight!”
