Cecil Williamson’s response

Cecil Williamson
President, Selma City Council

Feb 26, 2014 — Please take down this bogus and fraudulent petition. There are no plans to build or expand a monument to Nathan Bedford Forrest on city owed property in Selma, Alabama. The Forrest monument has been on the same site since 2001.The City never had plans to erect a monument to NBF or to expand the current monument. The NBF monument was not erected by the City and is not owned by the City. The site where the monument sits is owned by the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Well intentioned people are being misled, misinformed and misused by Ms. Fortier and each day this intellectually dishonest petition remains on this site. Cecil Williamson, Member
Selma City Council Selma, Alabama
