I support the Town Board issuing a statement that condemns the display of the Confederate Flag in our town. This is not a ban.
Why is this important?
Despite a complicated past, today, the Confederate Flag endures as one of the most recognizable and offensive relics of slavery, racism, intolerance and hatred in America. Issuing a condemnation of the display of the Confederate flag asserts that Rensselaerville does not wish to be a place for relics of racism or renewed hatred, and that such sentiments should not feel emboldened in our rural town.
