A Pledge and a Prayer

When I first began covering Bremerton it was following three years of being the Sun’s reporter on Bainbridge Island. There were a lot of differences between the two cities. The mayor doesn’t run the council meetings here but has a much heavier influence on policy. The meetings themselves start earlier and are much, much shorter.

There’s also a prayer and a pledge.

Contrary to what some of you may believe about reporters in general, it’s not my job to stir up controversy. So in a very large way I tread into this subject matter tenderly. If this is not an issue for someone, I don’t want to make it one. Nonetheless, there was at least one Bremertonian weighing in on the Bainbridge discussion, so I want to ask the question of what you think of Bremerton’s practice of saying the pledge and a prayer and having both on the agenda.
