Pledge of Allegiance causes disruption at Mitchell County supervisors meeting

Osage, Iowa -The Pledge of Allegiance caused a dispute Tuesday morning at the Mitchell County board of supervisors.

Supervisor Stan Walk left the room before the meeting started as patrons recited the pledge, according to the Mason City Globe Gazette.

The week before, Walk led a board discussion regarding the legitimacy of the phrase “and  justice for all.”

County Attorney Mark Walk informed the chair Steve Smolik if pledge is desired, he needs to move for a motion.

In a video on Al Winters for Mitchell County Supervisor’s Facebook page, Attorney Walk is talking to chairmen Smolik.
