“Thank you all for joining the friends, co workers, community and the families of Officer Kevin Burrell, Officer James MacDonald and Officer Dess Phipps.
We’re here to celebrate today. We have many things to celebrate! Were here to memorialize and celebrate the historic resolution passed by the California Legislature to name portions of the Highway after these courageous officers. We’re also here to celebrate tenacity and collaboration.
Sgt. Fred Renolds has worked for more than a decade to have this day come to fruition. His tenacity and unwavering commitment brought us here today.
The spirit of collaborating made it happen. Working together, Fred, Assemblyman Mike Gipson and myself, working together, collaboratively, is how we got it done.
I was very pleased and honored to help Sgt Reynolds effort to make sure that our community is reminded of them and what they did for all of us. Thanks to Sgt. Reynolds and his efforts, we won’t forget the important role that law enforcement has played in the history of our great city.” – Councilwoman Janna Zurita
