Aguilar Reflects on San Bernardino Community Six Months After Terrorist Attack
Today, Rep. Pete Aguilar issued the following statement, reflecting on the San Bernardino community six months after the Inland Regional Center terrorist attack on December 2, 2015:
“The past six months have been an incredibly difficult time for our region, but our people and our community have continued to show the nation the resiliency of our city. We were dealt an unimaginable tragedy that took 14 innocent lives, injured 22 and shook the Inland Empire to its core. As we continue to heal and move forward, today we pause to remember those who were taken from us, pray for their families, and give thanks to our brave first responders who stopped the violence that day and continue to work around the clock to keep our neighborhoods safe.”
Since the devastating attack last December, Rep. Aguilar has been working closely with law enforcement and local, state and federal officials and agencies to help communities recover costs incurred from the emergency response to the attack.
Rep. Aguilar represents California’s 31st congressional district, which includes the City of San Bernardino. Prior to serving in Congress, Rep. Aguilar served as the Mayor of Redlands.
