Susan, we did reach out to the Rabbi and we will reach out to other minority religions. Thank you for your input.
City Councilman, District 14

I understand that you’re chaplain for the city council. I understand you have been given the task of trying to show case the diversity of our lovely city during the invocation period at the city council meetings.
I notice that all but one speaker (on the list) is Christian. I do hope you’ll accept applications from the minority religions and the non-religious.
We have Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, Humanists, Unitarians, etc in our community. I do hope your office will reach out to the minority religions that might be too intimated to apply.

Good morning. Thank you for your consistent interest and attention to this matter. I have attached the schedule for the year as it stands. Council Member Jim Love and his assistant Kevin Kuzel handle/manage the list and the submissions. A constituent does not have to be from the Council Member’s district to submit and offer to participate in the invocation. The thought was that opening it to submissions sent to your District or At-Large Council Member would allow a wide representation of the city and the faiths in the city.
These requests may also be submitted to Council Member Love’s office as the Chaplin.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
All the best,
LEEANN M. KRIEG
