Reaction continues to Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh's decision to remove the Columbus Circle Statue.
The Columbus Monument Corporation posted on social media that they're disappointed in the Mayor's decision. The organization says they will also be pursuing legal action to prevent the statue's removal.
Over the weekend, the statue was vandalized with the words “murderer” and “genocider”. Mayor Walsh said that he understands that his announcement will not sit well with everyone.
The Columbus Monument Corporation says they will continue to hold their annual wreath-laying ceremony Monday at the statue beginning at 11.
