Kirk Cox Statement on Fairfax County Contemplating a Flag Ordinance


RICHMOND, VA. — Former Speaker of the House and candidate for Governor Kirk Cox released the following statement on Fairfax County’s consideration of a flag ordinance to regulate the flying of flags, including the American flag, by private citizens and businesses.

“This is an absolute affront on the freedom of speech of Fairfax County residents. It is disgraceful to every person who has supported, fought for, and died for our flag. Residents of Fairfax County should be able to proudly display their patriotism without being regulated by bureaucratic nonsense that serves no purpose.”
