The mayor of Garrett apologized to a local business owner Monday for an incident Aug. 28 in which she threw away a small stack of religious pamphlets in front of a cash register at Garrett Quickway, 608 S. Randolph St.
The manager of Quickway, Kulwinder Nagra, 38, said he went outside to ask why Hoeffel took all four of the pamphlets that had been in front of the register.
“She said, 'It's against my beliefs,'” Nagra said. “She said, 'This is against Christianity.'”
