Mayor Hancock Congratulates President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on Historic Election Victory

Mayor Michael B. Hancock today released the following statement on the results of the 2020 presidential election:

“Congratulations to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris! This was an historic win and historic election. I want to thank everyone for their patience while all the votes were counted, and for the record number of people who exercised their right to vote. This is a victory for hope, decency and the promise of the American people. Come January, the dysfunction will be over. President-elect Biden has faced this type of challenge before, working with President Obama to pull us out of the Great Recession, and he’ll be ready on Day 1 to take the steps needed to get this pandemic under control. He’ll be ready to rebuild our economy and work with Congress to get a stimulus deal that struggling Americans and businesses desperately need right now. He’ll be ready to bring honor and respect back to the White House. This is a new day for our country, and now that the election is over, it’s time for us to come together, to move forward together, and rebuild together.”
