McCracken County Judge Executive Craig Clymer – United We Stand Message

I am asking all who care about our McCracken County community to contribute toward the creation of a racial unity message.  The message (attached) will be placed on the Paducah Water Works tower located across I24 from the Confederate flag in Reidland.  The mission is to counter any divisive, negative image created by the Confederate flag by displaying a larger, more visible, positive image of racial unity:  A black and white arm shaking hands surrounded by the United States flag and the words “United We Stand”.  It will be a message to the approximate 36,000 travelers daily on I24, as well as our own citizens, that in our County, all races are equal and united.  No tax money will be used, only your generous donations.
