CHESTERFIELD, Va. — The Chesterfield Board of Supervisors decided Wednesday to allow a national white-supremacist organization to meet at the Chester Public Library on Saturday as scheduled.
“We have to bear the unbearable,” Supervisor Jack McHale said.
“I strongly advise you to have a large police presence,” said David Childress, a county resident and Richmond police officer.
The Rev. Curtis W. Harris, regional vice president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, said in a statement he would organize a protest and prayer vigil the day of the meeting.
