Several residents reported to City Hall that they found flyers with Anti-Semitic content in their neighborhoods and parks. Boulder City is a welcoming community that embraces diversity and strongly condemns this discriminatory behavior and calls for those responsible for sharing these flyers to stop. Mayor Joe Hardy released the following:
“Dismay would be too light of a word to describe how I feel as a person and as the Mayor of Boulder City hearing about the targeting of my Jewish brothers and sisters. When we attack groups or individuals, we demean ourselves. It is inappropriate to propagate "literature" that is filled with hate. I know of no religion represented in Boulder City that condones such behavior about any religion or race. We strive to be better. I am grateful for the diversity of belief organizations in Boulder City. I appreciate all those willing to pray for us before City Council meetings. I suggest that we all examine ourselves and recommit to love one another. We can disagree and still be agreeable.”
No suspects have been identified at this time. City officials will continue to work with residents to identify those responsible and hold them accountable. If someone sees these being distributed or left at homes or parks, please report it via the SeeClickFix app, at www.bcnv.org/concerns, or call Boulder City Police non-emergency at 702.293.9224.
