In an editorial-page column in The Ledger, Mayor Howard Wiggs calls for “collectively crafted solutions” to divisive issues such as the Confederate memorial in Munn Park. While not explicitly taking sides in his column (he’s defended the monument when it’s been criticized by members of the public at City Commission meetings), he  singles out anger seen in “shameful name-calling and attacks on those who view the statue as their history and heritage.”
