Press Release from Joseph Maturo, Jr.
In response to receiving over 2,000 tacos as part of overnight campaign initiated by ‘Reform Immigration for America,’ Mayor Joseph Maturo, Jr. released the following statement:
“The Town of East Haven has received an abundance of tacos as a result of the campaign initiated by the group ‘Reform Immigration for America.’ Recognizing that there are many in need in our State, we have arranged for all of the tacos to be donated to local soup kitchens and pantries including the ‘Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen’ in New Haven.
The abundance of tacos that we received today underscores the importance of the issues currently facing the Town of East Haven and highlights the need for the Town to continue the process of healing and reform that I initiated immediately upon taking office through the efforts of the Town’s newly constituted ‘LEARN’ Committee.
The events of the past few days have focused our Town, and my administration, on the need to deal sensitively and compassionately with the challenges currently facing our Town. We will continue to address those challenges while also striving to provide the services our residents have come to expect.”
