In his website, Mayor Bramson says the following about the Armory: "The Armory has been a subject of intense debate, with some in the community committed to its preservation and others entirely indifferent to its fate. Earlier iterations of the Echo Bay plan assumed demolition of the Armory — the current plan would preserve it. Personally, I assign the highest priority to a clean, vibrant and publicly-accessible waterfront, but if adaptive reuse of the Armory can be accomplished within this context, then it would be a major plus, so I hope that the RFP bears fruit." Note the bit about his "highest priority". It is not the preservation of the armory. It is the development of a "clean, vibrant and publicly accessible waterfront". Does "clean" mean demolished? Do you sense that the Mayor is not enamored with the Armory on this Memorial Day?

Mayo contends that there is no basis for the assertions by Mayor Noam Bramson that the Gadsden Flag belongs to any private party or entity. The removal of the flag from the Armory is nothing more than the suppression of the First Amendment.
