Petition to Halt Removal of Confederate Memorial
Lauderdale County, Alabama
The citizens of Lauderdale county, Alabama, in response to the proposed removal of the Confederate monument located in front of the Lauderdale county courthouse, hereby petition the county commission, as well as the Mayor of Florence, Steve Holt, and the city council to halt the removal of the Confederate monument. In the current social climate, it is unsafe to move the monument from its current location. We, as residents of Lauderdale county and the city of Florence, request a county-wide vote before any decision is made, and request for city and county officials to allow citizens of the county and city to be party to the decision making process.
