Just to be clear: I agree with Ryan Maier (now a Lake Worth commissioner)—Invocations before City meetings should be eliminated

At a debate at the Lake Worth Playhouse, John Paxman (the moderator) had a Yes/No question for the candidates: Should the invocation at the beginning of City Commission meetings be eliminated? Then-candidate Maier said "Yes", they should be eliminated from the City's agenda.

Just to be clear. . .I agree with Ryan Maier. It's my personal view that prayer has no place in government meetings. But I also have nothing but respect for those that disagree, like Lake Worth Commissioner Ryan Maier.

I hope that clears things up.
