It is with sadness that we learned of the death of Benoît Herr, Deputy Mayor of Joigny. In that role, he served as the representative for the Hanover-Joigny exchange, as well as Joigny’s sister cities in Germany and England. Mr. Herr was a true friend to Hanover for many years and a supporter of cultural friendships. In December, he hosted the Hanover town manager Julia Griffin. At the Sister City event, he delivered an inspirational speech calling for international understanding.
