Scott's resolution was reported in the newspaper's coverage of a march demonstrators organized in response to the deadly white supremacist demonstrations in Charlottesville, Virginia.

In light of yesterday's events, where white supremacists gathered to protest the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue, Mayor Jim Gray has chose to expedite the removal of Confederate monuments in Lexington. The impact killed Heather Heyer, a 32-year-old paralegal who attended the rally in protest of the hate and bigotry for which it stood.

Pugh says she's keeping mum on when the monuments would come down in an effort to prevent the kind violence seen in Virginia on Saturday when white nationalists came to Charlottesville to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. We have thoroughly examined this issue, and heard from many of our citizens, Gray said.

Pugh also referenced a meeting she said she had with New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu about Confederate monuments removal.
