Flagler County Commission Statement on KKK and Diversity
The Flagler County Board of County Commissioners is proud of the diversity of people who choose to make Flagler County their home. Flagler County is enriched by its wealth of ethnic and racial diversity.
The Commission adheres to the First Amendment right of every citizen to speak openly and freely but every now and then that right is sorely tested.
Such an occasion occurred in the City of Palm Coast recently. A printed document left on driveways and dropped off door-to-door made disparaging remarks about our neighbors and friends.
The Flagler County Commission, as an elected body is entrusted by the voters of Flagler County to oversee County government, wishes to go on record denouncing the intolerance and thoughtless words of a few individuals.
The Flagler County Commission proudly endorses the work of countless residents who work toward establishing a harmonious community. County residents not only treat every individual with respect and dignity, but also take part in celebrating the diversity of cultures in the County by attending festivals put on by the various ethnic clubs and organizations to enjoy each other, the food, music and customs of many lands.
The Flagler County Board of County Commissioners proclaim that the County is a better place to live because of its diversity.
