Letter to the Community from Mayor Paul Rennemeyer and Town Board:
On behalf of the Windsor Town Board, let me be the first to say that we do not condone or accept any form of racism, discrimination, brutality, or inequity. The tenet we stand on is that all who call Windsor home or visit our town should always feel safe, welcome and valued in our community. Our town is made up of many amazing people who value integrity, family and unity. That is what we stand for and that is what we will advocate.
While we know that words on a paper or distributed digitally are not enough, we want to reaffirm our commitment to kindness and education. We have confidence in this community, including our Police Department, to respect all people as valuable members of our town. We want to reiterate the words already shared from Windsor Police Chief Rick Klimek, who said, “Our men and women are held to high standards and it is an organizational priority and expectation for each of us to hold each other accountable.” His words also speak for the greater belief of myself and the entire Town Board.
Each of us has the power to influence the societal outcry to recognize and address areas where each of us can improve equity. Each of us can commit to kindness, acceptance and education. The way we choose to individually treat each other in our everyday lives, the way we choose to react with respect, and the way we can learn to honor others around us will radically affect our community for the better.
It starts with each of us as individuals.
Collectively we can stand against injustice and inequity and together we can hold fast to the values that make Windsor welcoming to all. We ask that you do the same in your home and in our community.
Mayor Paul Rennemeyer & Windsor’s Town Board
