President McKinley has a move ahead of him. The Arcata City Council recently voted to remove the statue of the president who died in a 1901 assassination.
An admirer of McKinley's who actually met the president paid for the statue and a nearby plaque. But some Arcatans have long complained that McKinley represents racist and imperialist attitudes from our country's past.
Council member Susan Ornelas was among those voting in favor of statue removal.
