MidPoint for Thursday, July 13 – Victor Crist, Yvette Lewis and Doug Guetzloe

Share

Hillsborough County Commissioner Victor Crist kicked off the program, which was centered around the controversy regarding the Confederate monument that has stood outside a Hillsborough County courthouse for more than 100 years.

Crist is critical in the discussion, because after voting last month with 3 of his GOP colleagues to maintain the statue (vs. three board members who voted to move it), he’s said he would be willing to reverse his vote, once the county finds an appropriate home for the monument.

Also debating the issue was Yvette Lewis with the Hillsborough NAACP and Doug Guetzloe with Saving Southern Heritage.
