According to The Hayride, a City Attorney confirmed the Mayor's Office is in discussions with a Private Museum on Slavery to display New Orleans Monuments worth millions.
Preventing the Abuse of New Orleans Finances and Priceless art by Mayors and City Council Members
The precedent being established would allow a future mayor to "repay" campaign donors by declaring public art a "Nuisance" and transferring possession to donors.
The city spent over $2 million to remove the statutes and left the pedestals for future expenditures.
Don't let a misguided policy by the City Council and their errors in Due Process allow the Mayor to transfer art that took on the average 15 years to fundraise by hundreds of citizens to private collectors.
During the meetings: 1. The Council did not review the Heritage Preservation Section of the City Code.
2. Did not review monuments one by one by separate motion.
3. Did not give a Preservationist equal time of 10 uninterrupted minutes to respond to the mayor's false statements regarding the "Context" in which the monuments were erected and who these men were.
4. At the end of the December 2015 meeting the Mayor stated these four monuments are just the start.
5. Now Activist groups want to remove 100 monuments from New Orleans.
