Yelm: Mayor Harding’s statement on White Horse Tavern issue

Statement at 9am today from White Horse Tavern on their Facebook page:
“We want to thank everyone for the enormous support to hang patriotic banners in front of the bar. What started as a simple “vent” after getting the notice from the city of Yelm to not display such banners without applying for the proper permits, snowballed into an amazing nationwide campaign. The post was seen by over 190,000 people worldwide, with over a thousand shares, and hundreds of comments. We are happy to say that this morning Mayor Harding made a final comment to the post that the letter was sent in error. The original post has been hidden because the matter is resolved, and the banners can stay without going through a permit process. Thanks again for your support!”

These select posted comments echo many:

– “Well Mayor Ron had an interesting take on the unfolding of events. If an overload of punitivity had not existed in the past the reactivity would not have been so strong. I not referring to this town only. This is an event that has been noted and watched worldwide, accident or not.”

– “Power to the people.”
