In October, Stark was joined by members of the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Committee to request that a statue honoring King be placed on the property at the Seneca County Justice Center. Stark said the MLK Jr. Day Committee has celebrated the work of King in Seneca County for more than 30 years.

At the time, the commissioners agreed to send the issue to a committee to seek more public input before making a final decision on the memorial.
