"In Detroit, earlier, The Beatles had announced that they would refuse to appear on stage in Jacksonville if the audience was segregated. They had heard that blacks in Florida were only allowed to sit in the balconies at concerts. Their statement read:
'We will not appear unless negroes are allowed to sit anywhere.'” - The Beatles - A Diary

I love this town. And when you love something, you don’t threatened it, you don’t punish it. You fight for it. You take care of it. You put it first. As your City Counselor, I will make sure that no one takes advantage of Pawnee. If I seem too passionate, it’s because I care. If I come on strong, it’s because I feel strongly. And if I push too hard, it’s because things aren’t moving fast enough. This is my home, you are my family, and I promise you, I’m not going anywhere.”
