Another Misguided March and Rally in St. Augustine May 17-19, 2018 re: St. Augustine Confederate Monument/Memorial
These misguided folks need to learn why we decided we won't destroy history in St. Augustine and how we're the first in the Nation to tackle this issue by contextualizing a local war veteran monument. After lengthy hearings, our City decided to preserve the historic monument and explain it. Everyone who testified (with a few exceptions like Doug Russo) listened and spoke respectfully. Mayor Nancy Shaver and Commissioners, and City Manager John Patrick Regan, P.E., were at their best, with a Solomonic solution.
These misguided folks should learn some manners, too.
Watch video here of noisy, noisome demonstration during the opening Nights of Lights event in November 2017. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5KNVqIB0wY.
Led by haters like REV. RONALD RAWLS, Jr., Anastasia Mosquito Control Commissioner JACKIE ROCK, et al., who know not that they know not.
We should invite the misguided putative progressives, including those being bussed in from Gainesville and Jacksonville, to kindly watch videos of the City of St. Augustine's Confederate Memorial Contextualization Advisory Committee. http://www.citystaug.com/CityStAugTV/WatchSpecialMeetings.php
