The following is our response to the recent article published in the Sunday, July 12 Star-Exponent, “Culpeper County board claims it has ‘no control’ over Confederate flag.”
This reminds me of that old adage, “as much as things change, some things remain the same.”
The Culpeper County Board of Supervisors had the chance to step up and be a force for change in Culpeper County. They had the opportunity to make a statement that Culpeper is a place where all residents matter and are represented in the county government.
They could have let it be known that some things are not representative of a changing and inclusive community. They could have seized the opportunity to be historically correct at a critical point in our nation.
Sadly, they did not.
