TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The Confederate statue on the grounds of the Lee County courthouse will remain there.
District 4 Supervisor Tommie Lee Ivy made a motion Monday morning to move the statue.
However, no one else on the Board of Supervisors seconded the motion, keeping the statue at its current spot.
District 1 Supervisor Phil Morgan said moving the monument would not have any effective results in race relations.
Ivy said many citizens sent him emails and called him in support of removing the statue.
He is not sure if he will try to remove the statue again.
