From The Woodruff City Bulletin:
The June 2010 Woodruff City Council meeting was called to order by Mayor Brad Burnett at 7:00pm and lasted only a little more than 20 minutes but likely the most notable minutes in recent Woodruff history.See also:
Immediately after opening of the meeting, Mayor Brad Burnett stood to address the Woodruff Citizens in attendance. Burnett began by stating he was a little convicted and wanted to make sure people understood something. Mayor Burnett then very passionately stated that “as long as I am here and I think as long as these people who are elected sitting in front of you”, referring to city council members, “we’re going to open every meeting with prayer”. As amens were heard from citizens around the room and council members James Smith, Tony Kennedy and Toni Sloan, Mayor Burnett continued… “It doesn’t make any difference if you appreciate that or you don’t appreciate that we’re going to open our meetings with prayer”.
