Replace the Lakefront Statue of Christopher Columbus with Kenosha's Al Molinaro

This petition had 582 supporters


The statue of Christopher Columbus, near the heart of our annual fireworks display, and on the corner of one of our most prominent areas, does little to represent the culture, history, or soul of Kenosha.  Wisconsin has little to do with the colonial period and might as well display a French fur trader if going back this far from Wisconsin's own history.  The controversy over what this figure represents also serves to undermine the positive image we try to maintain in this city, and is far from the best candidate to represent the historic Italian population of Kenosha.

Instead, we'd like to propose the consideration of Al Molinaro as a replacement.  Beloved by a nation, and as proud a Kenosha Italian as any other, who best to represent the city of Kenosha then one of our own local legends?  I think this move would bring many more smiles to the lakefront area, locals and visitors alike.
