State Rep. Greg Snowden, R-Meridian, was the guest of The Meridian Star’s Editorial Board last week. Among the many topics that will be discussed in the upcoming general legislative session will be the bill calling for a tourist boycott of Aruba.
The Star: State Sen. Videt Carmichael has pre-filed a bill calling for a tourist boycott of Aruba. Would you support that if it gets to the House?
Snowden: I would support it. I have been as frustrated as anyone. It is mindboggling to see how this investigation has been handled. We are accustomed, as American citizens, to having certain rights. It has been shocking to find out about, and to see.
A boycott is symbolic, but I think it would be a strong signal to express, if nothing else, our solidarity with the Holloway family and our disgust over what looks to be a botched investigation and maybe a cover-up.
Videt Carmichael stated that he will filed a resolution to support the boycott of Aruba.
Carmichael said he has filed a resolution is support of the boycott to be considered when the Legislature is in session in January
