Bangor mayor stands with Mideast residents

BANGOR – Mayor John Rohman, speaking on behalf of the City Council, issued a statement Friday supporting the Middle Eastern community of the city in the wake of the recent terrorist attacks.

“I and the members of the City Council are dismayed that some of our friends and neighbors in the Middle Eastern community fear that they may become a target of retaliation for Tuesday’s attacks,” stated Rohman.

“They, too, have come to our community to make a better life for themselves and their families. Their presence among us enriches us all and they must be embraced,” Rohman stated.
