The pledge debate wasn't even on the agenda for Monday night, but that didn't stop a few hundred people from cramming into city hall to share their opinion on the issue, many coming from St. Louis Park and all across the state.

"I want to make sure that our traditions continue to be recognized because this is a great country," said Michael Smith, from Eden Prairie. "Our pledge needs to be said."

"I think they're just really trying to think that we're going to go away and ignore it but we're not," said Marni Hocke, from Minneapolis.

"I agree with the council in that the pledge should not be said before meetings because it might ostracize some people," said Meg McCormick, from St. Louis Park.
