Senator Osten Releases Statement After Anti-Semitic Graffiti Found Near Ledyard High School

Today, State Senator Catherine Osten (D-Sprague) released the following statement in response to a local incident involving a swastika spray-painted on a sign near Ledyard High School. A sign displaying a different message was recently vandalized with the anti-Semitic imagery before being taken down.

"This latest discovery of swastikas out in the open is evidence that hatred continues to exist in our world, and we must speak out against it," said Sen. Osten. "This symbol represents hate, violence and discrimination; for it to be near a high school is a sobering reminder of how pervasive ant-Semitism remains. We must fight back against hatred in all its forms."
