Alachua County Drops ICLEI Membership!
From our most cherished County COmmissioner, Sue Baird:
Dearest Friends of the County and the world,
My greatest wish (among so many others…) is for the U.S. to get out of the U.N. Or should we say that the U.N. get out of the U.S.
The good news is that we have taken one small step by discontinuing our membership to ICLEI, the United Nations initiative to establish Agenda 21 in United States’ cities and counties (Local Governments for Sustainability).
I have asked Mr. Chris Bird (head of the county Environmental Protection Department) to also send them a letter requesting that they remove Alachua County from their list of members on their website. I should get that next.
Our next important step is to get John Martin, Jean Calderwood and Dean Cheshire elected to the county commission. Imagine what the four of us will accomplish! If we do not get this done, I will guarantee you, member of ICLEI or not, the commission will align with Agenda 21 philosophy more than ever before.
Fifty days to a better four years or a worse four years. Our actions will determine that outcome.
