I am enraged that hate crimes against Asian Americans are increasing at a staggering rate. As Mayor of Beachwood, I stand with all of our residents in condemning the murders in Atlanta and the recent rise of attacks fueled by the rhetoric of nationalism and xenophobia. In the strongest terms, I denounce this violence and pledge to work against hate. Beachwood’s Asian-American residents support our city, our schools and our economy and our community is strengthened and enriched by their presence.
