Lauderdale Repubs: Don't Move Monument
On Friday, the Lauderdale County Republican Party issued an edict of sorts decrying the removal of the CSA monument now sitting on court house property. Will it accomplish anything?
1. While the county commission is elected on party affiliation, the commission has stated it does not own the monument and is merely giving it back to the city which holds official ownership.
2. City council members may be minions of a political party or not; however, the council is not elected along party lines. What effect would an official Republican rebuke have?
This official pronouncement from the Lauderdale Republican Committee smacks of grandstanding. July is going to be an interesting month.
