Middlebury Selectboard Statement on Recent Downtown Graffiti

The SelectBoard of the Town of Middlebury strongly condemns the heinous acts of vandalism desecrating public ways downtown with offensive Racist and Anti-Semitic graffiti. These actions are depraved and cowardly. They are hate crimes, and our town must not tolerate such behavior. Therefore, the Board commits itself to use all the powers of government under its jurisdiction to apprehend the perpetrators and prosecute them to the limit of the law. The SelectBoard also expresses its sympathy with the intended victims of these actions and stands in solidarity with them.
