The councilors heard more than two hours of public comment on the issue Tuesday, with most speakers protesting the religious tone of the motto, saying it would be divisive and ostracize those who are not religious. The motion failed after a motion made by Tom Mielke was not seconded by fellow councilors Jeanne Stewart or David Madore.The following day, however, Madore said it “would be appropriate” to display “In God We Trust” on the wall behind the dais in the hearing room. “We have a county motto, and that motto represents us as a local community,” Madore said. “This local community is not a silo. We don’t stand alone. We are a part of a nation, and this nation, America, has its motto.
