FLAG SALUTE:                                   VIRGINIA VELASQUEZ, YOUTH COMMISSIONER

INVOCATION:                                    On May 16, 2006, the City Council unanimously approved the offering of a brief
                                               invocation at the commencement of all meetings of the City Council or
                                               Redevelopment Agency. In doing so, the City Council is cognizant of its legal
                                               obligation to assure that such invocations are “legislative prayers,” and that they do
                                               not purport to advance any particular religion or religious denomination.

                                               Consistent with the so-called “Burbank” prayer decision, the City Council hereby
                                               admonishes those who offer invocations to do so consistent with the current state of
                                               the law – meaning that an invocation must not be used to identify, advance, or urge a
                                               particular religious denomination, or identify a specific religion’s deity. This
                                               evening we are pleased that our invocation will be offered by: LAURIE LOGAN,
