During today’s meeting, Ward 6 Councilman Robert Flowers had this to say: “ I refuse to allow that to come into my city while I’m here. I do not, do not support that. I don’t care what the intent was. It should have never happened and I do not want that to happen in the City of Gulfport.”

Gulfport Mayor Billy Hewes says contingent on confirmation of the float in question it is the council’s preference that the float not be a part of any parades in the city.
