Somerville Alderman Proposes to Cut Out Weekly Prayer and Pledge of Allegiance at BOA Meetings

By William Tauro.

Ward 6 Alderman Lance Davis during Thursday night’s Somerville Board of Aldermen weekly board meeting proposed to discontinue the prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance at all future weekly board meetings.

The board also discussed removing the wording “We the men and women of the Somerville Board of Aldermen” and replaced it with “We the people of Somerville!”

All this coming a week after controversy of a Watertown City Councillor who took a knee to the Pledge of Allegiance during her own inauguration ceremony in Watertown.

Local veterans organizations across the city are in uproar regarding this proposal.

Let us know what do you think about this proposal?

  1. Why do people from Central America get preference over people from Central St?
    Can we focus on US? We don’t have to tear our page out of history books to be compassionate. Shouldn’t people that come here for a better way of life experience a better way of life? No place is perfect but why shame us as racists or bigots. Police are forced to disobey laws on books now while joe citizens keep in line or else. Everyone has to wait in line. Just like the Post Office!
    My family matters!
    Sounds like big govt run amuck.
