Mayor Michael O’Connor has issued the following statement:
“I am deeply saddened by the passing of Former Frederick Alderman and community leader Mr. William Hall. Bill’s death leaves me and many with a profound sense of loss as he was deeply respected and admired by Frederick residents and leaves an indelible legacy in our community.
Mr. Hall was an important pillar in the City of Frederick for his entire life. He served on the Board of Aldermen for two terms from 1998-2006 including one term as President Pro-tem from 2002-2006. Mr. Hall was a friend and mentor to many. Losing such an important person in our community is always difficult, but we will celebrate his life and accomplishments that made our community better.
The City joins in keeping the Hall family in our thoughts and hearts during this time. We mourn with Alice, Denise, and Tia, and their families during the difficult days ahead, and we thank you for sharing Mr. Hall with us for all these years.”
By virtue of Maryland Code Regulations 01.01.199.30 paragraph 5.04, Mayor O’Connor has ordered the Maryland State Flag to half-staff effective immediately on City properties, as well as the City flags, until sunset the day of interment in honor, and mourning, of Alderman William Hall.
