Williamson County Votes to Remove Confederate Flag

The Williamson County Commission voted to REMOVE the Confederate flag from their county seal by supporting the task force’s recommendation in a 16 YES, 7 NO vote. The next and final step will be whether or not the Historical Commission approves the change.

“It’s disheartening to think that we would even contemplate saving a symbol that is a universal symbol of hate.” – Commissioner Keith Hudson speaking in favor of removing the Confederate flag from the county seal. Hudson is the only Black member of the Commission.

Some were not so keen on the idea of removal. Commissioner Bert Chalfant of District 7 made a fool out of himself by cursing on a hot mic during the vote.
