"It’s with solemn hearts that we honor the victims of 9/11. On behalf of the Charlotte City Council and our citizens, I want to thank everyone who is taking time today to remember the lives lost on September 11, 2001," said Mayor Dan Clodfelter. "We will always remember that fateful September day. The events of 9-11 forever changed our nation, our cities—our communities."
"I look forward to participating in this year’s Charlotte 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb. This is our city’s opportunity to honor the memories of the 343 New York firefighters, 60 law enforcement and 10 EMS members who selflessly gave their lives in an effort to save others."
