Decision Maker Response
Cecil Williamson
President, Selma City Council

Aug 23, 2012 — Dear Dr. Jacobs:
What would you have government to do about this monument? Neither the monument, which has been in the cemetery for 11 years, nor the lot on which it stands belong to the city. We are open to suggestions. Would you have the government suppress freedom of expression, no matter how unpopular expression is, or restrict speech, no matter how distasteful? Thank you for contacting me; however, please be assured that the City of Selma is neither building nor expanding a monument to Forrest.
Sincerely ,
Cecil Williamson
Attorney at Law
