ESD to consider adopting Texas pledge
Johnson County Emergency Services District Commissioner Darren Yancy, who once campaigned for a Texas senate seat, had asked the board of directors to consider pledges of allegiance to the state flag at the beginning of each board meeting.
Vice President Rick Cumins has placed the request on Thursday's meeting agenda as an action item. Commissioners will meet at 7 p.m. at 2451 Service Drive in Cleburne.
"It would match the manner for what is done with the county," Baskett said. "We thought this should be something we voted upon to make it official."
If approved, President R.C. McFall will open meetings with an invocation, followed by pledges to the U.S. flag and then the Texas flag.
