A Message from The Mayor:
The events of recent weeks have left me deeply saddened. The brutal mistreatment and death of George Floyd at the hands of a police officer. The chase and death of Ahmaud Arbery at the hands of men who were at best racially biased vigilantes and more likely bigoted racists. Rioting, looting, and violence by people claiming they are “protesting” while their criminal actions overshadow real protesters with a real message of real importance.
As John Norris, individual American citizen, I condemn the brutal, unprofessional, and apparently criminal behavior of the police officers in Minnesota that resulted in tragic death of Mr. Floyd. I fervently call for justice to be done and pray that it will be. As Mayor of Riverwoods, I will continue work, along with Chief Dayno of the Riverwoods Police, to ensure that we have both a police force and an administrative staff that are professional and properly trained. The simplest way to say it is I expect every person employed by, or affiliated with, the Village of Riverwoods to treat everyone, resident, visitor, or just passing through, with dignity and respect.
Racism and bigotry have no place in Riverwoods.
