“Dayton has been through more than we ever could have imagined this year. In May, fourteen tornadoes tore through our community, leaving a long path of destruction. Last night, a mass shooting took nine innocent lives and wounded more than two dozen people.
“Our community has shown incredible resilience in the face of these tragedies, and I’m sure Dayton will rise to this challenge as we always have. We look out for our neighbors in Dayton. The outpouring of love and support from residents has been overwhelming. Please continue to keep the victims and their families in your prayers and thoughts in the coming days.
