Statement from Board Chairman Peterson about KKK flyers left on doorsteps
Canova Peterson, Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, has released the following statement on the flyers left by the Ku Klux Klan on some Hanover and Henrico County doorsteps during the night Saturday:
“Along with our Henrico neighbors to the south, some Hanover County residents in Bruce Estates found a flyer from the Ku Klux Klan on their doorsteps on Sunday morning.
It is telling that those individuals who deliver these flyers choose to scurry around in the middle of the night. They know that in the light of day, they would be utterly rejected by the good people of Hanover County.
Hanover County condemns the hateful messages espoused by the Ku Klux Klan. We do not want their flyers. We do not want their visits. We do not want to hear what they have to say. The decades they have spent espousing and practicing racial hate and violence speak for them.
The residents of our county will not be intimidated or manipulated by the Ku Klux Klan or any other group that espouses violence as a means of achieving their aims.”
