Mayor Harry Rilling and his team worked hard to keep us safe during the pandemic. I am proud to have been able to see first-hand the incredible work of his team, under his leadership, that tirelessly gave above and beyond every day. I want to especially thank Director Deanna D’Amore and the Health Department and Lamond Daniels and the Community Services Department. I am so glad Mayor Rilling brought you to serve in Norwalk and am grateful you were looking out for us all throughout this challenging time.
As we remain vigilant about the delta variant, I want to commend Mayor Rilling and his administration for increasing access to health services and vaccines for our underserved communities. City departments helped all residents receive food, financial assistance, and other social services throughout the pandemic. And the Community Services Department took on Family Navigators, who worked directly with in-need families in Norwalk.
