CAMPBELL, Ohio (WKBN) – Campbell’s Mayor Nick Phillips placed the City of Campbell on a curfew Sunday evening in light of protests.

He announced that everyone should be off the streets by 9 p.m.

Mayor Phillips also stated that he had been informed of businesses closing in Youngstown and Boardman.

Mayor Phillips wrote a statement on Facebook. Here is just a segment of that statement:

My heart is heavy for Mr. George Floyd, his family, and all our brothers, sisters, and neighbors of color throughout this land. Campbell is a small town, and incredibly diverse, yet I am not so blind to understand that inequity exists everywhere, even here. We need to pray for each other, support each other, take time to understand each other. I applaud our neighbors in Youngstown for publicly having those hard conversations today.
