In God We Trust slips in at Newport city council

On April 28th 2015 an agenda item simply stated as:

Placement of “In God We Trust” Text in Council Chambers
Select appropriate font and placement for “In God We Trust” in the Council Chambers.

was discussed at very little length.  It seems at though the Councilman Kevin Muldoon made the assumption that this was a done deal even though the council had never spoken about it in public meetings.

A citizen brought this up during his comment and it was pretty much dismissed.

Shady tricks and poor assumptions all around on this.  The only dissent was Mayor Ed Selich who was against it saying he didn’t think it was appropriate in the chamber.
