OPEN LETTER TO THE COMMUNITY
Yesterday, in the hustle and bustle of starting a new year, our community paused to bury 3 year-old Terrell Mayes, Jr., the innocent toddler who was killed by a stray bullet in his own home just two days after Christmas. We at the Minneapolis Urban League extend our condolences to the entire family of young Terrell.
The death of this baby particularly stirred me as I am the father of a 3-year-old son who happened to celebrate his birthday yesterday. As I reflected on the dichotomy of the day, I struggled to understand the lack of progress we seem to have made in transforming our community.
Ramsey County Attorney John Choi has appointed Kyle M. Thomas to serve as the new Director of the Civil Division for the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office. Prior to his appointment, Thomas served as Corporate Counsel for Home Services of America, Inc., an affiliate of Berkshire Hathaway and parent company of Edina Realty.
“Kyle brings a strong desire to serve the public and make a difference in our community,” said Ramsey County Attorney John Choi. “He believes that he can translate his skills and experiences for the public good and to help others succeed. I am confident that he will do this, and so much more.”
