Charlottesville City Councilor Kristin Szakos was among those who voted to remove an historic 1924 statue of Robert E. Lee from a  downtown park— a position that was successfully endorsed last year in a split 3-2 vote. It was learned last week that the City Council would put the statue up for sale. Szakos joins Coy Barefoot to discuss the controversial decision and what has motivated her thinking on the subject.
