Mayor Pugh Seeks ‘Creative Ideas’ to Replace Baltimore’s Confederate Monuments

Mayor Catherine Pugh said Wednesday it cost the city “less than $20,000” to remove Confederate monuments from public spaces in Baltimore this month, and some parties have expressed interest in acquiring them.

“We’ve got several issues to address, including where they ultimately go,” Pugh said. “We’ve gotten several inquires with regards to one of the statutes. We’ve gotten a call from a lady who wants to buy them.”
