LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The Lawrence mayor is calling the vandalism of her home during a commission meeting that focused on homelessness politically motivated.
Mayor Jennifer Ananda said Tuesday that someone threw a brick through one of her home’s windows last week in the midst of an at times tense discussion about funding for the local shelter. She said the brick contained a message related to the homeless issue, the Lawrence Journal-World reports.
Speaking at the start of this week’s meeting, Ananda said that though she understands and applauds conscious and heartfelt activism, the vandal’s violent actions were unproductive and harmful.
