The Littleton Select Board during their meeting on Monday, June 13, agreed to allow a prayer to be held at the opening of their regular Monday night meetings at the Littleton Community House. Raising the topic during the board’s April 25 meeting was Select Board member and New Hampshire Senate-1 candidate Carrie Gendreau, who said the week before she had the privilege of attending a Senate session in Concord, where a clergy member gave a prayer before the session. Gendreau said she found it refreshing and then asked fellow Select Board members Roger Emerson and Linda MacNeil how they would feel about having members of Littleton clergy, on a rotating basis, open up Littleton Select Board meetings with a prayer. At the April meeting was former Littleton Selectmen Milton Bratz, who said there are federal laws and court decisions regarding prayer at public meetings and the town should first check with its legal counsel because there needs to be a rotation among different belief systems.
