MONUMENTAL DECISION CONFRONTS JACKSON COUNTY LEGISLATIVE CHAIR SCOTT BURNETT: HONOR 1,000 AFRICAN-AMERICANS OR ONE DEAD WHITE GUY!!!
Among Jackson County Insiders and community leaders there has been a recent MONUMENTAL CONTROVERSY over the priorities of Jackson County Legislative Chair Scott Burnett.
URBAN CORE CRITICS CALL OUT SCOTT BURNETT FOR PROMOTING THE ALBERT REIDERER MONUMENT WHILE OFFERING A LUKEWARM RESPONSE TO A MEMORIAL THAT WILL HONOR 1,000 AFRICAN-AMERICAN LEADERS!!!
Take a look at the disparity . . .
Legislator Burnett doesn't seem too excited about the Memorial proposed by Bishop Tindall . . .
“I think it’s a good idea. We just have to see if we can afford it and where it fits into things,” said Scott Burnett, a county legislator.
However . . .
IF LEGISLATURE CHAIR SCOTT BURNETT IS SO CONCERNED ABOUT CASH . . . THEN WHY DID HE GLEEFULLY HELP TO SET ASIDE $250K TO HONOR ALBERT RIEDERER?!?!
This disparity isn't lost on insiders @ The Courthouse . . .
Here's a quote on the topic . . .
"Scott is showing why there is so much division among the residents of Jackson County. He clearly isn't paying attention to where the voters would like to see their money spent. The Leon Jordan memorial would honor more people and has a greater groundswell of support. And while Al was well liked by many, it's a very small and closed circle who want to see him memorialized. Scott Burnett needs to come to a decision, and pay attention to the bigger community concern and not just a few people from the Ward Parkway Corridor."
Unfortunately, mainstream media is keeping the $250K Riederer memorial quiet because most residents would balk at the expense for an old, rich white guy . . . How much cash is his family kicking-in???
And now it's an open question that should guide our Jackson County Legislative Chair . . .
IS IT MORE IMPORTANT TO HONOR THOUSANDS OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY LEADERS OR ONE LONG GONE POLITICO?!?!
You decide . . .
