Butler County Commissioners To Allow “In God We Trust” To Be Displayed; Wednesday’s Vote Was 2-To-1

April 17, 2014
By

By a 2-to-1 vote, the Butler County commissioners on Wednesday opted to allow the display of the motto “In God We Trust” in their meeting room at the county government building.

The resolution on which they voted Wednesday had been proposed by Commissioner Dale Pinkerton in conjunction with a national initiative pushed by non-profit organization In God We Trust-America.  Commissioner Jim Eckstein opposed the move, citing possible legal action from someone like the American Civil Liberties Union.  Commissioner Bill McCarrier cast the deciding vote.

“In God We Trust” was adopted as our national motto in 1956 – a move that was reestablished by the United States Congress in 2011.

According to In God We Trust-America, more than 330 counties and cities across the country have adopted such a resolution.  Only one other Pennsylvania County has such a resolution.  That is Cameron County, where the motto was adopted back in 1960.
