MADISON – Representative Adam Neylon (R – Pewaukee) released the weekly radio address on behalf of Wisconsin Legislative Republicans.
Hi I’m State Representative Adam Neylon.
For 58 years the Waukesha Christmas Parade has been a staple of our community. What happened Sunday night at the Waukesha Christmas Parade was an incomprehensible tragedy. In a time when so many traditions and activities have changed or been put on hold, the parade was an opportunity for our community to celebrate together.
Now as a community, we grieve together for all those forever impacted by this tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and everyone who witnessed the tragedy that happened Sunday night in downtown Waukesha.
I am grateful for the first responders in Waukesha and the surrounding communities that so quickly came to the scene. I am grateful for the bystanders that helped their fellow community members who were injured. I pray that our community does not experience anything like this ever again.
There are many ways to support our community at this time. If you would like to be of help, please consider donating blood through Versiti or the American Red Cross or contributing to the United for Waukesha Community Fund which will support the needs of the families impacted by this incident.
Many of us struggle to comprehend the impacts of this tragedy. If you need support, please
contact the Disaster Distress Helpline by calling or texting 800-985-5990.
Our community is strong. We will grieve together and we will come together to support the
victims of this terrible tragedy. God bless.
