Florence is a community full of great people. We support civil discourse. Unfortunately, in the past several years a small pack of adult bullies have been terrorizing our school board and superintendent as well as members of the local fire board. What we are experiencing here in Florence is far from civil.
Here are just a few examples. Is it okay to chest-butt the school superintendent before a school board meeting? Is it okay to physically assault another community member because they don’t agree with you? Is it okay to post hate signs across from the playground where children as young as five play at recess? Is it okay for individuals to be threatened with their house being burned down? Is it okay to stick your hand in your mailbox only to find feces and blood because you had the nerve to stand up to these folks? This is not civil and not okay. It is time to stand up to this ugliness and use our vote to fight back.
Florence is a strong community. Strong communities support their infrastructure – their schools and their fire department. Stand with me and vote Yes on May 8th for the school and fire levies. Help the Florence community send a strong message that there is no room for such hate crimes in our community.
