YORK, Neb. – The York County Commissioners have tabled an item to display “In God We Trust” on the courthouse.
Barb Otto, a Nebraska volunteer with In God We Trust America Inc., brought the item before the board. She travels the state promoting the idea of branding the national motto within county courthouses.
Otto said it seems that values and history are leaving this country.
York County resident, Stephanie Jackson, said her beliefs may be different, but it is still her county.
The Board of Commissioners tabled the item to speak with constituents in their respective districts to gauge their feelings on the addition. 51 counties in Nebraska, including: Platte, Pierce, Madison, Nance, and Boone, have voted in favor of the display.
The item will come back before the board in two weeks.
