“First, thank you for inviting me and my staff to celebrate the 2023 National Day of Prayer with you all. I truly enjoy working closely with our community and am honored to be standing here speaking to you today,” said Cueva.

“As it is my duty to ensure public safety throughout our communities, I would like to take this time to pray for my staff, our incarcerated population and the community in which we all share,” he added. “To those present today, I pray for our health, safety and wellness. I also hope we can continue to collaborate for events such as this to bring us all together in a positive light.”

“Thank you for bringing our communities together to honor and participate in the National Day of Prayer,” said staff.
