Just read the long article in the View regarding the Williamson family’s offer to donate funds for a heated pavilion at Abernathy Park as long as it also displays an 8.5-foot bronze statue of former Flint Mayor Don Williamson.
Run! The only thing worse than a reminder of the cantankerous Williamson in the faces of Davison residents for generations to come would be a statue of former Davison resident Michael Moore.
If the City of Flint doesn’t want the statue for historical purposes, it could be auctioned off for scrap. Williamson was big on his own vanity projects. Let the insanity of it stop here. — Gayle Haffner, Davison
