Sen. Josh McKoon Releases Statement on MLK Statue Unveiling

ATLANTA (August 29, 2017)  |  Senator Josh McKoon (R – Columbus) released the following statement on the unveiling of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. statue on the State Capitol grounds in Atlanta:

“I am sorry I couldn’t be at the unveiling of the statue of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the State Capitol yesterday. Dr. King was a man of deep religious faith who allowed his beliefs to inspire a new generation of leaders in every aspect of his life. Those religious convictions allowed him to lead a nonviolent movement committed to ending racial injustice in America. May we always celebrate those who act because their faith compels them to do so.”
