Woodbury County Supervisors reject change to moment of silence in meetings
Woodbury county Supervisors considered making a change to the moment of silence that begins each meeting.
Chairman Matthew Ung offered a resolution to give the board members an opportunity to pray out loud or participate in a moment of silence during this time.
The choice of a prayer or moment of silence would rotate between the 5 supervisors.
That proposal was ultimately rejected by the board, something that disappointed Ung.
"It was unfortunate that we had a lot of supervisors today kind of talk about how their beliefs are informed by their faith and how they pray individually and what they pray even during the moment of silence. But they voted to deny other supervisors to actually say it out loud which I think is a disgrace," Ung said.
The final vote was 4 to 1, with Ung the sole vote in favor.
