Message from the Montgomery County Commissioners about the Derek Chauvin trial.

Apr. 21, 2021

Montgomery County Citizens,

The conviction of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd cannot right the wrong that ended his life. We know it is only one step towards justice, and that many more steps are required in order to obtain equal justice.

Law enforcement, and everyone in a position of authority, must be held accountable by those they are charged with serving.

We recognize that this verdict is just the beginning of our quest for racial equality. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Floyd family during this time.
