City Commissioner Art Otero of Kissimmee, Florida is moving forward on an effort to add "In God We Trust" to the city logo. He proposed the idea because he feared the city and entire country was moving toward "liberal postures on issues such as homosexuality, gay marriage, abortion and the legalization of marijuana."
He also referred to the Obama administration as "socialist." He's a real "middle of the road" type guy.
The City Commission blocked the possible change in early August, citing the "ridicule" Otero's push brought on Kissimmee as well as threats of boycotting local businesses and "future businesses looking elsewhere." Mayor Jim Swan also said public employees have been deluged with distracting calls and comment on the issue.
Otero, who lists himself as a Fan of Sarah Palin on Facebook, still contends he has plenty of support and wants residents may start a petition for a voter referendum.
