This is a very hard day for Philando Castile’s family, those he loved, and our community. I’ve met Philando’s family and know how much the students at J.J. Hill Montessori adored him and miss him.

The right to free speech is critical to our democracy. In the days ahead, I hope that everyone exercises that right peacefully and that we can work together to foster trust between our law enforcement officers and the communities they serve.
