SPECIAL STATEMENT FROM THE ORANGE COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS

 

ORANGE COUNTY, NC (October 17, 2016) –

The attack on the Orange County Republican Party headquarters early Sunday morning is a despicable act. The Orange County Board of Commissioners expresses its outrage that such an event could occur here or anywhere. We are grateful no one was injured in this senseless act. Orange County is an inclusive, welcoming community that values all viewpoints and perspectives. Our political process must be conducted without fear of reprisals or repression, or we risk undermining all the principles of freedom we hold dear. – Earl McKee, Chair of the Orange County Board of Commissioners on behalf of the Board.
