What to do with the Confederate Monuments that sit in major intersections in downtown Wilmington?
That was the issue dominating a forum on race – hosted last night by Mayor Bill Saffo and City Council Member Kevin Spears. The answer could come as soon as Tuesday.
Mayor Saffo says he’s exploring options for removal of the statues – which are protected by a 2015 state law. One of the options, used by Governor Roy Cooper to remove statues from public spaces in Raleigh, is to declare them threats to public safety.
