Alachua County Historical Commission Vacancies

Press release from Alachua County

The Alachua County Historical Commission (ACHC) will soon have three Citizen-at-Large vacancies. County residents with a knowledge of local history are encouraged to apply. The application deadline is April 12, 2021. Those persons with recent applications on file will be considered. ACHC meetings are typically held at 5:30 p.m. on the second Monday of each month. At this time, in-person quorums are required, so new applicants should be able to attend in person.

The mission of the ACHC is “to promote, preserve and protect Alachua County’s historic resources.” The Advisory Board provides research and recommendations to the Alachua County Commission on matters related to County history. The Historical Commission provides leadership in advancing the identification, protection, preservation, and interpretation of Alachua County’s cultural heritage. They provide historical research and provide documentation as needed for exhibits, educational programs, and pamphlets about County history. They may assist local organizations such as museums, libraries and archives, historical, archaeological, genealogical societies, and other institutions with historical objectives.

    The mission of the ACHC is “to promote, preserve and protect Alachua County’s historic resources.”

    Did I misinterpret the “wokeness” over the past couple years? Haven’t we been witness to one of the greatest displays of a civilization attempting to erase the evils of prior generations because people didn’t agree with what occurred?

    I thought we as humans, whether black, brown or white – we were taught to learn from our history. Isn’t that one of the reasons we don’t grab something hot? It is a learned behavior that we garnered from experience. Maybe some were fortunate enough to have parents who taught them not to do something that would hurt them. Even a rat can learn a certain behavior.

    “Those who cannot remember the the past are condemned to repeat it.” – George Santayana

    Unfortunately the left are hoping past history is forgotten. Perhaps local leadership is intent on residents’ servitude to them and the utilities and taxes we are bound to? Is that their new “vision” of the future?

    Maybe residents should take a look at the people they elected to “rule” over them
