In 2007, Bloomfield (New Mexico) City Council member Kevin Mauzy proposed that citizens should be allowed to put a Ten Commandments monument in front of the city’s municipal building. The council accepted his proposal, even though nothing happened at the time.
In 2011, Mauzy was no longer on the council… and he suggested putting a Ten Commandments monument in front of the city’s municipal building. (Isn’t that convenient?) The five-foot-tall granite monument was privately paid for and erected by July 4 of that year.
