Dane County Supervisor Thinks Pledge and Prayer are “Divisive”

Inclusivity is no longer the goal.

Heidi Wegleitner has proposed removing the pledge as well as the word ‘prayer’ from the board rules, which are currently undergoing a biannual redraft.


The Dane County Board’s executive committee will consider Wegleitner’s proposal at a meeting Thursday, although newly elected supervisors would have the final say following the April 5 election.


‘It just doesn’t feel like it’s appropriate for us to be doing, when in a pluralistic society we want to be inclusive and representative,’ Wegleitner told ‘At the end of the day, I think it’s divisive.’


Wegleitner said she looked into which area governmental bodies recite the pledge at the start of meetings and found inconsistencies, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.

    At the end of the day I think she’s divisive. So we can remove her as well. Buh bye Karen.
