November 16, 2015
Once again over the weekend we were reminded that all nations that love freedom have an enemy that is willing and able to attack at anytime. These agents of evil choose to strike so called “soft” targets because they know there will be little resistance. The people of France were violently and savagely attacked this weekend by an enemy that chooses to harm the innocent in an attempt to subdue the freedom loving world into submission. Their plan will not work! As every soldier will tell you, freedom is never free, we must remain ever vigilant. We all must resolve ourselves to be constantly on the lookout for the unusual or suspicious activity around us. When ever we are abroad or even here at home if you see something that doesn't look right tell someone. While the people of France are still recovering from these cowardly attacks, I have asked that the flag of France be flow along with our other flags at city hall for the remained of the week in a show of solidarity with the French people. Please keep the French people in your prayers this week.

Yours in service,

Chuck Bradford,
Mayor - City of Mantorville
