Ocean Springs residents angry over Facebook post
Ocean Springs community members used the public comment portion of today’s meeting to address Mayor Dobson’s most recent Facebook post.
Some residents claim he made countless comments that were not only ‘disturbing,’ but ‘divisive’ as well.
Dobson did apologize for the post prior to public comment, saying he now realizes how his remarks regarding the flag issue may have come off as offensive. Ocean Springs resident Noelle Nolan-Rider said, “It’s not actually a political issue. It is a non-partisan issue. Both Republicans and Democrats have come out in favor of flag change.”
Mayor Dobson stressed to the crowd that flag change and his decision to fly the flag over City Hall are two separate issues.
