The committee has allocated $500,000 to pay for removing the statue, if needed.
That prompted Jackie Nichols, spokesperson for Shreveport Chapter #237 United Daughters of the
Confederacy to issue this statement:
Do not Fund moving the monument in your budget.
NEVER has Shreveport Chapter said that …
Caddo Parish leaders could vote to use tax money to move the Confederate Monument from in front of the courthouse. But a vote of the full Caddo Parish Commission is not expected until the first meeting in December.
Caddo Parish Commission President Stormy Gage-Watts says the legal battle over the Confederate Monument in front of the Caddo Courthouse is nearly over, but she says there are still a couple of legal challenges to wrap up.
The legal community in Caddo Parish will likely take notice of the legal fight going on in South Louisiana. A man in East Feliciana Parish says he can not get a fair trial at a courthouse where a Confederate monument is displayed.
