Jack Ciattarelli, Republican candidate for governor, released the following statement in response to the conviction of Derek Chauvin in the case of George Floyd:
“This monumental case, which gripped the world, will live forever in the memories of all who came to know George Floyd and his story.
“George Floyd’s unnecessary and tragic death ignited raw emotions, but also revealed hard and ugly truths, compelling us all to examine and address deep-rooted injustices that undeniably exist.
“Though I am grateful the judicial system worked, there is still room for deep introspection, thoughtfulness, and empathy for one another. For the sake of our country, there is also no better time for decisive action. We must move forward, together.”
