Statement from Mayor Robert H. Conley on Yesterday's Violence at the United States Capitol

Madison, NJ – January 7, 2021 – Mayor Robert H. Conley issues the following statement regarding yesterday’s violence at the United States Capitol:  

“The sights of yesterday’s attack on the Capitol; the ‘Peoples House’, will forever be embedded in our minds. Just as the images of planes flying into the World Trade Center, we will remember exactly where we were when attacks took place on our own soil. While I certainly don't want to compare the loss of 9-11 to yesterday, this is a moment in history that must never be forgotten. As President-Elect Biden said yesterday, ‘Words do matter.’ Just as our nation pulled together after the last attack it is time for us to use our words and actions to come together to make our country and community stronger."
