what it looks like.
Dr. Kent Portney, in “Our Green Cities Blog” (http://bit.ly/18Rr7Rd.), writes
that he visited Findlay on at least three occasions to assist and promote
sustainability in Hancock County.
But most telling is this statement from a paper he wrote with Zachary
Cuttler titled: “Local Environment, The local nonprofit sector and the
pursuit of sustainability in American cities: A preliminary exploration”
It clearly connects the local sustainability plan with Agenda 21. The
following is a direct quote.
“In terms of the pursuit of local sustainability, many national and
international organizations have been instrumental in serving as the
catalyst and coordinator of efforts to promote sustainability and
environmental protection. By now, the operation in the U.S.A. of large
environmental groups generally (Berry 1999, Shaiko 1999) is well documented,
and the role of the ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability (formerly
known as the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives),
through its Climate Change Program, and its Local Agenda 21 and Local Action
21 programs, is clear.”
On April 1, with the approval of Mayor John Gore, Marysville became the first town in Ohio to pass Resolution 6-13, entitled “Resolution opposing
Clean air and clean water is embraced by all; the opposition has to do with
trying to create a Utopia that restricts use of property and eminent domain
that will be used to accomplish it.
More important than what the plan is called is how it will impact private
property owners of the community.
Letter # 3
With the diluting of terminology, one can label a person a liar, which is a harsh connotation, or one can refer to a person as telling a fib.
The media uses this tactic in presenting propaganda designed to slant the perception on a particular sensitive issue. The liberal agenda is now known as progressive, a more positive connotation.
The same scenario has taken place in reference to the sinister “Agenda 21.” The liberal, I mean, progressive, media is now labeling it as “sustainable development” because Agenda 21 became a dirty word.
Now, the proponents of this unconstitutional infringement upon our rights are desperately trying to separate the two entities.
Agenda 21 accusations should not only delay future projects that would lead to property loss and livelihood of Findlay residents, but it actually needs to stop this iron-armed outreach of the United Nations from getting a hold in our community.
Findlay and Hancock County fall under the authority of the Toledo Metropolitan Council on Governance, which is tied to sustainable development, which in turn is one of the iron-arms of the United Nations.
Via the so-called flood control, these charlatans want to seize prime farmland in our area. Folks, do your homework! This issue is all about control, government-grabbing land control.
I would be discouraged to think the only folk who know about this impending danger are the members of the Findlay 9.12 group. In reality, there are many, many more!
These citizens have taken the initiative and the time to research Agenda 21, sustainable development and common core indoctrination. They are armed with the truth and their only goal is to educate their fellow citizens.
By the way, the citizens of Fostoria have chosen not to have affiliation with Toledo governance. Smart move!
Unfortunately, within Findlay city government are folks who like federal power and dollar signs to the extent that they will ignore the wishes of those who elected them to their office.
Government is meant to protect its citizens, whether federal, state or local. As citizens of Findlay, we need to hold our elected officials accountable!
