To The Editor:

How dare Tim Brinker suggest that the controversial Confederate statue removed from Forest Park be erected in Franklin County!

Tim stated, “It would be fitting to honor those who fell fighting for Missouri.” Missouri was not a Confederate state. We also had Union soldiers fighting to preserve our country.

Tim also stated, “A likely home would be the newly dedicated Veterans Memorial Park in Union.”

What an insult to erect a statue dedicated to the traitors who fought against our country in the park honoring our great veterans who fought for our country.

I am so sorry I ever voted for Tim Brinker. I will never make that mistake again.
