Colorado Mayor Shane Fuhrman banned the Pledge Of Allegiance at all board meetings but that didn’t stop members from reciting it anyway.
Fuhrman made the decision to suspended the practice of saying the Pledge of Allegiance during board meetings last week, without a vote by the board members.
The Colorado Mayor told the board members and attendees, “Due to direct and indirect threats, inappropriate comments in and out of public meetings, and the general divisiveness this is creating in our community, we will not be doing the Pledge of Allegiance during town of Silverton board of trustee meetings.”
He provided no evidence of such threats or comments.
Despite the threat of being removed by the Mayor, Several attendees and board members stood and recited The Pledge of Allegiance. That’s when the mayor lost it and threatened to remove all singing from the city meeting.
