Local leaders react to Washington protest

Staff Writer

     The Decatur Daily Democrat is currently working on a story regarding the violent protest at the Capital Wednesday, with commentary by Decatur Mayor Dan Rickord and Berne Mayor Gregg Sprunger and other area leaders. We had hoped to have this story ready for publication in Friday's edition; however, due to time constraints, and in an effort to allow those involved sufficient time to provide a thoughtful and more in depth response, the article will be held until the Saturday, Jan. 9, 2021, edition of the Daily Democrat. What are your thoughts on the protest? Were you or someone you know at the Capital Wednesday? We'd like to hear from our readers on this issue. Contact Editor Jannaya Andrews at jandrews@decaturdailydemocrat.com to share your story.
