HARTSVILLE, NY – The regular Wednesday night Hartsville meeting got off to a rocky start, when, at the opening Pledge of Allegiance, a man, who was said to be from Jasper, would not take off his hat during the Pledge, after being asked to do so by Hartsville Town Supervisor John Bowles.
You can tell from listening to the audio above, that this was not the first time this has come up at the Hartsville Town Hall. Afterwards, we were told by a person who was there that the man in question does not like to take off his hat because of a medical issue. We told that to Hartsville Town Supervisor Bowles after the meeting was over. Bowles told us, that information was not conveyed to him.
