McComb City Council votes to remove state flag

McComb selectmen voted last night to remove the state flag, but how the vote was carried out is stirring controversy in Pike County.

Two selectmen, Michael Cameron and Tommy Kinsey, were late getting to the meeting. Before they could get there, a motion was made by selectman Donovan Hill to add the flag vote to the agenda.

“The motion has been made to remove all state flags internal and external from all city properties in the city of McComb,” said Selectmen Ted Tullos.
