WEST MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - The West Monroe-West Ouachita Chamber of Commerce is responding to the controversial remarks made by Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson during a GQ interview. 2014 Board of Director's Chair Staci Albritton Mitchell issued the following statement. The chamber was one of the major promoters of a "Very Commander Christmas" featuring the Robertson family.

Chamber statement:

"On behalf of the West Monroe-West Ouachita Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, we are proud to support Duck Commander, a Chamber of Commerce member.  We are proud of the positive impact the  Robertson family has had on West Monroe and the entire Northeast Louisiana region.  Mr. Robertson is being criticized for stating his personal religious beliefs, and that is regrettable.  We are pleased to see the family stand united in their support of one another.  We look forward to working with them and other WMWO Chamber of Commerce members as we continue to make this area a wonderful place to do business and raise a family."
