An open letter to the residents of my hometown of Burlington, WI:

Like many of my friends and family who still reside in Burlington, WI, I was saddened to learn of the devastation caused by the fire at Echo Lake Foods on the evening of January 30th. Thankfully no one was physically harmed in the fire. I’d like to commend all of the local and volunteer firefighters and all members of the community for their courageous efforts during this trying time. Burlington is and will always be my hometown and my ties to the community remain an immense source of pride for me and my family. I’d like to offer my sincere thoughts and prayers to all of those who may be adversely affected by this unfortunate event. Further, I look forward to joining Love, Inc. along with other members of my community as we join together to help those in need.

Best Wishes and God Bless,
Tony Romo and the Romo Family
