Mayor’s Update: September 15

I want to thank everybody who attended Monday’s 9/11 memorial ceremony. I particularly want to thank Becky Wynne, who was the keynote speaker for the event and celebrated the life of her brother, Rick Blood, who died in the World Trade Center attacks in 2001. Like all of us, Becky and Rick shared a love of Ocean City. Her speech was a moving reminder of how fragile life can be and of the importance of cherishing all the moments we share on Earth. If you were not able to attend the event, it will air on OCTV-97 at 7:30 p.m. Sunday and again at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
