Spirited speech was missing

Like many years in the past, my wife and I spent our Fourth of July at Les Gove Park. We enjoy everything about the celebration but alas, we miss Pete Lewis' annual God and country speech. Pete's annual speech capsulized the purpose of Independence Day. There is more to the Fourth of July than going out and having "fun."

Mayor Backus, what do you think of the idea of inviting Pete Lewis next year to stand on the podium and give his God and country speech?
