City Manager Weekly Update June 5, 2020

Post Date:06/05/2020 5:00 PM

Mayor's Message
We are all grieving at the senseless and horrifying killing of George Floyd.  Our nation is in shock, but more than that, we are all sharing in the pain.  We are only too-well reminded that racism, injustice and bigotry still pervade many aspects of our system and are in need of change.   Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness may be all of our unalienable rights, but all too often we find that the institutions, policies, and programs we have created, do not sufficiently reflect that. Read the Mayor's entire message.

This week Belmont witnessed two historic events in these unprecedented times that are currently consuming our daily lives. On Thursday, June 6, 2020 Carlmont students organized a peaceful demonstration to have their voices heard in a call for justice and civil rights for all. Participants walked from Carlmont Village to the Meadow in Twin Pines Park, where stories, emotions and views were expressed to the Crowd.




This afternoon, the Carlmont High Class of 2020 and their families participated in a Graduation Parade. Friends and Family watched, with social distance, as the parade of cars snaked from the Sports Complex through the Carlmont campus. The City would like to thank all the participants of these events, as well as the Belmont Police department and San Mateo Sheriff personnel for your cooperation and collaboration to ensure everyone's safety at both of these historic events.

Congratulations Graduating class of 2020! Click for picture video!
