“We have lost many neighbors, friends, and family to this pandemic. It hasn’t spared good people like Mayor Dan Paletko, who was a tireless advocate for the people of our community. He will be missed by many and I want to extend my sympathies to his family. As we weather this most recent loss, we must continue to come together as a family and support one another, like we have done for the past year. Mayor Paletko believed in the people of Dearborn Heights just as they believed in him, and the way we respond and rise to the challenges of these trying times speaks to the character of our community.”
