Council president says Talbot Boys may have a negative impact on economy in Talbot County

EASTON, Md. – Talbot County Council President Corey Pack is voicing his concerns saying that the Talbot Boys monument at the courthouse may have a negative impact on the area’s economy.

Pack says the county council’s vote to keep the confederate monument on the courthouse grounds may be driving people away.

He says he plans to speak with the county’s tourism director to help determine any possible negative impact.

“As this story gets more lags and starts to go out beyond the confines of the county, one can suspect that there may be some backlash coming back because of it,” said Pack.

Pack says he’s heard that some people will not travel to the area and some local businesses are considering relocating as a result of the county council’s decision to keep the Talbot Boys monument where it is.
