5/09/2020 IMPORTANT • A Message from the Mayor on behalf of City Council and the City of Santee
"Unfortunately, there has been yet another incident of intolerance in Santee. The Santee City Council, its citizens, and I stand resolute in our indignation of such display. There is no room in our society for racial prejudice, and these incidents are not indicative of the people of Santee. Citizens and visitors to Santee deserve to feel safe. Therefore, I will recommend at the next city council meeting the Community Oriented Policing Committee be expanded and take on the issue of intolerance in the City of Santee." https://youtu.be/8EVZMobNSbc
