By Casey Buscher SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) — Following the press conference regarding the Grace Street address, people reacted around Central New York.
The President of the Common Council, Helen Hudson, was disturbed after the controversial video was released in early June. Following the presser today, she is still uneasy about how the situation is being solved. As this is an ongoing issue in society today, Hudson believes there needs to be change.
One resident in Syracuse, Elijah Saucier, was disappointed with the outcome of the press conference and doesn’t believe the two men in the car are getting treated fairly.
Chief Kenton Buckner and Mayor Ben Walsh will host the first of many public forums in Syracuse on June 28th.
“I urge all members of our community to participate in this dialogue,” said Mayor Walsh. “The forum will be the first of many conversations and I am confident they will lead to greater understanding. To all in our community, I pledge this: we can do better. And if we all work together, we will.”
Location and time will be announced shortly.
