Parker County Commissioners Vote To Keep Confederate Monument

Yesterday afternoon Parker County commissioners unanimously voted to keep the Confederate monument, located on the courthouse lawn, EXACTLY where it is. The statue has been in Weatherford for 100 years, and is owned by the United Daughters of the Confederacy. The president of the United Daughters of the Confederacy spoke to the commissioners before their decision Thursday, and said she did not want to see the Confederate statue removed. She added that they would only remove it if the commissioners voted to remove it from outside the courthouse.
