Statement From Mayor Jim Gilvin Denouncing Antisemitic Flyers Distributed In Alpharetta

Released August 06, 2023 01:51 PM
Overnight, antisemitic flyers were distributed in several neighborhoods in Alpharetta.  The flyers appear to be similar to those that have been distributed in other area cities in recent months.
On behalf of the City of Alpharetta and the City Council, I am disturbed and deeply disappointed by these flyers. As a City, we fully support the freedoms provided by the First Amendment, but denounce antisemitism in all its forms.  Alpharetta is a diverse, welcoming, and inviting community, one that values and supports our differences. Hate has no place in Alpharetta, and it is not who we are. 
Alpharetta police officers are actively investigating this incident and will be coordinating with law enforcement agencies in surrounding communities in which residents have been victimized by similar acts.  We ask that anyone with information that may assist in this investigation contact the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety at 678-297-6300 or use our online crime tip reporting tool at
