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?
