[ARCHIVED] Statement by Mayor Rolison on Inauguration Day and Transfer of Power

As the nation prepares for the official transfer of executive power today, I want to wish President Joseph Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris the best and truly hope they can bring our divided nation closer together. These have been trying to times for the country, particularly since a global pandemic has taken hold here and has been relentless in its grip. I am confident the country will soon push its way through this crisis, as more vaccines become available to the general population.

I also want to extend my best wishes to U.S. Senator Charles Schumer of New York in his new position as Senate Majority Leader. Senator Schumer is acutely aware of the challenges faced in small cities like Poughkeepsie, and he has extensive knowledge of our area. I greatly look forward to working with him and believe he will be in a strong position to help our great city, state and nation as we confront the COVID-19 crisis and ultimately enter into a post-pandemic chapter of our history.

 Finally, I want to thank the citizens of Poughkeepsie for staying strong during these unprecedented times and for refusing to let the city be divided by the coarse national discourse that has not been in the best interests of the country and, in fact, has led to violence and a general sense of dismay that must be swiftly addressed by our national leaders and by our country at large.
