Story

King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn issued the following statement Wednesday in response to violent protests and occupation in Washington D.C. as Congress worked to confirm the results of the November election:

“Like many of you, I am watching in horror at what is happening in our Nation’s Capital. The President has an affirmative responsibility to call for an end to these riots and to allow our Democracy to function without intimidation. History will judge our President harshly if he does not immediately condemn these acts of violence and call for protesters to withdraw from the capitol building.

“Democracy is fragile and we have an obligation to future generations to ensure that the will of the majority is honored in the United States, whether we agree with the outcome or not. I pray there is a peaceful resolution to the situation and I pray for our Country.”
