Adams County Board members heard a reading of the Declaration of Independence Tuesday, which may be considered odd by some at a government meeting. County Board member John Brady, R-6, made the request at last month and with the board’s blessing, he read it at the end of the meeting.
It’s not too often you hear the Declaration of Independence read aloud except for the Fourth of July. It reminded me of a fantastic scene from HBO miniseries “John Adams” when it is read for the first time in public. If you get a chance, check it out.
