Cecil County Citizens: Before I go further, let me again state how sorry I am for the families of the students and faculty who died unnecessarily on Wednesday, February 14th in Parkland, Florida. I can only imagine how devastated their families feel. It appears that those in positions to make a difference and confront this repeating tragedy cannot find the will or the means to see it through. There has been much talk and rhetoric on what must be done. Locally, we work tirelessly with Cecil County Public Schools, Cecil County Sheriff’s Office and all local law enforcement agencies, as well as the Cecil County Department of Emergency Services to provide safe schools for our students and prevent such tragedies from occurring. We must follow the lead of our young voices and continue to impress upon our elected officials that continued inaction is not a choice.
