A Victory For Proudly Flying Military Flags!

Lenny Curry

I have ordered a review of the actions of the employee and pending the completion of that review, the employee and her supervisor have been placed on leave.

The warning didn't sit well with a customer-a military veteran who told Power that he thought it was wrong to take down the flags.

"He says, 'I took three bullets to the leg".

Other store employees corroborated the account to WJXT, and surveillance footage from inside showed the city worker confronting a man in the store. The video has gone viral, with more than 9 million views on Wednesday morning. Shaun posted a follow-up video Monday night, saying the mayor had reached out and a city representative had apologized.

"That's right, we just got a ticket. for flying military flags", he said.

Mayor Lenny Curry directed city staff that military flags should be treated the same as the US flag, the Florida Times-Union reported.

"I know that our customer base would love to see me say, 'Fire her, ' but I hate to see anybody lose their job", manager Marcy Moyer said.

In the warning citation, Power wrote down the flag violation fell under city code section 656.1303, also known as the Zoning Limitations On Signs.

The manager for the store claims Power was also rude to one of its customers, a veteran, telling him "you did nothing for our country". "I have reached out to the business owner and will review employee procedures".

"We are disturbed by some of the claims made about a city employee and are reviewing the facts", according to the statement.

"The business was issued a warning, and was not fined".

In a statement, Curry said that "While current ordinance does not address residents or businesses displaying military flags, I will not allow any citation of those who demonstrate their support for the Armed Forces. Mayor Curry and his administration respect and appreciate those in uniform who have served and continue to serve our community, and our country".

Power later posted to Facebook herself, issuing an apology before deleting the post, though screen shots continued to be circulated on social media. He delivered his support via Twitter on Monday evening. It's not in the public right-of-way. "I think there should be some serious reprimand to her".
