ICLEI, UN Agenda 21 - Private Property Rights - #2971 - Albemarle Co. Board of Supervisors Cancels Membership with ICLEI - Carole Thorpe, Jefferson Area Tea Party

This is a GREAT day in Albemarle County! Last night, the Board of Supervisors voted 4-2 to cancel its membership in ICLEI - International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives. ICLEI's primary goal is to promote and help implement radical U.N. Agenda 21 in local governments in America and throughout the world. The JATP sincerely thanks Ken Boyd, Lindsay Dorrier, Duane Snow, and Rodney Thomas for seeing through the benign facade of ICLEI and demonstrating strong leadership in the face of a sizable and mocking opposition from Sustainability advocates. Congratulations and thanks to Dr. Charles Battig who relentlessly led our fight against ICLEI since February with multiple speeches at monthly BOS meetings, countless hours of research and documentation to build our case, and for his presentation at our March 17 forum, "The Deceptive Agenda of Sustainability in Local Government". We also extend special thanks to Rob Schilling of WINA's "The Schilling Show" for numerous radio hours and SchillingShow blog posts devoted to this topic; to Tom DeWeese of The American Policy Center for his presentation at our March 17 forum; to Commissioner Richard Rothschild of the Carroll County, Maryland Board of County Commissioners for his valuable advice and action; to the ad-hoc Sustainability Committee of Dr. Charles Battig, Steve Peters, Carole Thorpe, Audrey Welborn, Clara Belle Wheeler, and Charles Winkler; to John Munchmeyer (Jefferson Area Libertarians) and members of the ACRC Executive Committee for their statements of support; to EVERYONE who attended/spoke at last night's meeting, wrote letters to the BOS, and in any other way contributed in some way towards this victory.  Read more.........
