Quotes from the Farmers Weekly November 14th issue By Nick Reiher
Democrats now have a 14 to 12 majority on the Will County Board. Denise Winfrey Democrat from Joliet is excited to Lead Will County Board. The Democrat Caucus meeting discussed the removal of the prayer which is said just after the pledge to begin the Board meeting. I hope the Democrat Majority is not considering removal of the Pledge also.
“The other issue, brought up at the caucus by board member Jackie Traynere, D-Bolingbrook, is more sensitive, Democrat Speaker of the Board Winfrey knows, and likely has strong support and opposition from both sides of the aisle: replacing the prayer at the beginning of County Board meetings with a moment of silence.”
The Prayer and Pledge have part of the tradition of the Will County Board since its inception. Now in the name of political correctness the Democrat leadership wants to discuss removing “GOD” from the Board Meetings.
