Dave, Becky, and Sam digest the Pierce County Council meeting, where a majority of councilmembers voted to display “In God We Trust” prominently in chambers. (Links below the fold).
Pierce County Council doesn’t yet have video of the meeting; the emergency recess 2/3 through might have something to do with that…In the meantime, listen to the podcast and amuse yourself with the following links:
- Full video of the Pierce County Council meeting
- Sam presented the open letter from Humanists of Washington with 99 signators from Pierce County, and loads more from elsewhere in Washington and the US.
- Check out coverage from local ABC affiliate King5 News. You’ll hear Councilmember Talbert ripping into McCune.
- Kiro News has a blurb too.
- The Bellingham Herald has a neat write-up, including comments from Adam who hung out with us before the meeting to strategize testimony. In the podcast, we explain a little more about the guy escorted out of the room.
- The News Tribune posts an editorial, opposing the display and lending credence to Sam’s evolving position on the historically hostile TNT
- Check out the website of the national movement to encourage municipalities to display the divisive slogan
