The Italian American Alliance is pissed at Mayor Walsh's announcement that the Christopher Columbus statue that was decapitated in June will not be returned to its pedestal in Christopher Columbus Park, but instead be sent to the senior-citizen apartment building the neighborhood Knights of Columbus is building:
WE ARE DISAPPOINTED AT THE OVERALL PROCESS AND ARE CONSIDERING LEGAL OPTIONS.
While some cautioned us not to trust Walsh, we did. It now appears that our trust was a mistake. However, there’s no other way of saying it. The Mayor did not keep his word.
