In just a few weeks, we will mark two years since the pandemic began. In that time, Holyoke has weathered a period of suffering and loss that has become far too common for communities across the Commonwealth and around the world. Recovering from this crisis has and will continue to be one of the top priorities for my administration, as we look to get families and businesses back on their feet in the coming year – coupled with establishing a local government that is meeting the needs of Holyokers. Equity and inclusion of residents from every corner of our city is a critical foundation of our local government as we attempt to bring resolutions to the challenges ahead.
In this communication I have a few updates for you as we continue our quest to navigate implementation of our priorities and hope to have these updates happen regularly to keep the citizenry informed.
Mayor Joshua A. Garcia
