Columbia County, Florida temporarily needs a different venue to hold their annual football jamboree, an event relished by the community. It could be moved to Annie Mattox Park, but allegations surfaced that a person who is forced to register sits on the park board. The association said they will be looking elsewhere.
The cancelation sparked an uproar at Thursday night’s Columbia County Commissioners’ meeting, which was September 16, 2021. So far, the video is not up at https://www.columbiacountyga.gov/county/commissions/agenda-and-minutes.
This man with a past sex offense was accepted on the board for Annie Mattox Park. That tells us a lot, mainly that he is NOT re-offending and is a law-abiding citizen. What is wrong with the Columbia Youth Football Association? Lack of knowledge.
Several weeks ago, Annie Mattox Park had to be closed following a weekend shooting incident; yet, the Columbia Youth Football Association is okay with that but not having a man who learned from his past mistake(s) and is now acknowledged by his peers to be worthy of serving on a park board.
