"Keep Marysville as a white church by as much as possible," she replied.
Cramer moved to Marysville within the last decade and is a novice in politics, according to the newspaper. She did not return an e-mail on Friday evening requesting a comment, but was reported to have expanded her controversial statement when she was approached after the forum.

Thursday's forum recalls a similar May controversy in Jackson County, Ga., Hoschton. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Mayor Theresa Kenerly had allegedly withdrawn the application from Keith Henry, a city council finalist, "because he's black and the city is not ready."
