The City of Paso Robles is condemning the distribution of antisemitic and anti-LGBTQ flyers found in the River Oaks area.

City officials say on June 7, a citizen reported that small plastic bags containing the flyers were found at multiple locations throughout the neighborhood.

“The City firmly believes in fostering an inclusive and accepting community where every individual can live without fear or prejudice,” City Manager Ty Lewis said in a statement. “The dissemination of this material undermines the fundamental principles of equality that are the bedrock of a just and harmonious society.”

Officials believe the bags were distributed during the overnight hours of June 6.
