The Columbus Citizens Foundation has partnered with over 39 other Italian-American organizations and announced today that they are reaching out to all NYC elected officials and 2017 electoral candidates for their stance on the preservation or removal of the Columbus Monument and Statue at Columbus Circle.  

Board President of the Columbus Citizens Foundation, Angelo Vivolo, had this to say; "With no firm answer from our City's Mayor on whether the monument to Columbus will stay or go, we are forced to reach out to all New York City elected officials and 2017 electoral candidates to demand their position on this important part of our Italian-American history.  We have given politicians until September 28 to reply, and we will then make their opinions public knowledge to all New Yorkers."
