In the June 3rd edition of the Echo, Mayor Carl Florea devotes       his community letter to the subject of racism. This was       apparently spurred on by the tragic death of George Floyd in       Minneapolis. Mayor Florea posits the notion that we here in       Leavenworth are responsible for...
I have been a citizen and business owner in Leavenworth for 11 years now, and came here every summer as a child growing up, with my family owning property near the Ponderosa. In this time I have never seen, heard, or witnessed any form of racism from the Leavenworth community. Nor have I ever heard...
