Masks donated to Plymouth Township workers

As a marine who served overseas, John Lacny said he has a lot of respect for public safety and those fighting COVID-19 on the front lines.  That prompted his recent donation of 150 KN95 equivalent masks for the Plymouth Township Police and Fire departments, he said.
 “It is an honor to be able to help the men and women that work every day to keep up us safe and healthy,” said Lacny, who is currently seeking office as state representative from Plymouth Township, the city of Plymouth, Northville Township, the City of Northville, and part of Canton Township.
  “What made this opportunity even more special was that we were able to make the donation during National Police Week.”
President John F Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day; the week in which that date falls is National Police Week.  During this week, prior to the COVID-19 crisis, more than 25,000 attendees would visit Washington D.C. to honor those police officers who made the ultimate sacrifice.
 “Public service has been a long tradition in my family,” Lacny continued.  “I was proud to serve our country in the United State Marine Corps, my uncles and cousin served on the Chicago police force, and my cousin Admiral Mullen served as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for Presidents  George W. Bush and Barack Obama.  I also worked for Raytheon in the Middle East to help defend our allies and our National Defense interests.   Therefore, being able to provide PPE to our Public Safety officials during National Police Week is a complete honor.”
“No one wants to lose lives to COVID-19 any more then they want to see someone lose their life to senseless violence. When you see our police and firefighters please thank them for everything they are doing to protect us, and please pray for those families that have lost loved ones to the COVID-19 virus,” concluded Lacny.
