Late yesterday San Bernardino County Fourth District Supervisor Curt Hagman issued a statement urging President Barack Obama to include first responders and the wounded when he meets with the families of the San Bernardino massacre today. According to current reports, Obama only plans to meet with the families of the 14 victims who died in the Dec. 2 shooting, but not the others during the private event.
“Wounded members of the San Bernardino County family and the first responders who saved them from further harm also deserve the President’s time,“ said Hagman. “This is an opportunity for unity and healing at the highest level and I call upon President Obama to be more inclusive with his meeting.”
The supervisor offered assistance in getting the wounded and first responders to the meeting. “Our police and sheriff’s department personnel did an incredible job of putting their lives on the line for all of us,” he said in a written statement. “The Board of Supervisors thanked them personally at our meeting Tuesday and President Obama should take this opportunity to express the gratitude of the American people to these heroes face to face.”
