The mayor of San Leandro, Calif., on Thursday, just hours after WND reported on a city council vote to fly the flag of communist China over city hall, decided to suspend that decision.
In a statement delivered to WND by city officials late Thursday, Mayor Stephen Cassidy commented on the controversial decision to fly the flag of the People’s Republic of China at the San Leandro City Hall on Oct. 1.
“San Leandro does not fly the flags of other nations at our city hall. We need to call a ‘time out’ and allow the community to weigh in on whether or not we should raise the flags of other governments,” he said.
“We should not rush to host the flag of a specific government at city hall and set a precedent before we listen to the community and carefully review our options,” he said.
