Thank You

Release Date: 2020-07-19

This Sunday morning, I’ve been reflecting on the tremendous outpouring of kindness, love, and prayers from all of you for my mother and stepfather. Your notes and messages this week have been a huge source of strength for my brother and our family.

The nurses, doctors, and medical staff have been incredible and we are in constant communication with them. Both my mom and stepfather are receiving heroic care. They continue to remain on ventilators but are making progress. We know that fighting COVID-19 takes time and for many patients, weeks in the hospital. We continue to feel optimistic about their recovery.

Over the days and weeks ahead my focus will remain on my family and leading our city. We need to keep our families safe and our community protected. This is a moment in history where we must make difficult sacrifices for the public good. 

We are in the middle of a health pandemic, an economic crisis, and moving our country toward justice and racial equity for all. There’s a lot of work to do, but together, we will get through this.

Thank you,

Mayor Robert Garcia
