Please don’t forget about out meeting tonight at 6:30 PM at the Ramada Inn on Franklin Road. Lots to cover. A key vote is coming on HB1721 which will help give us the ability to fight Agenda 21 at the local level. GOP speaker of the state Bill Howell has shown his true colors and is now opposed to this bill.
Please note that Howell was making the rounds before the session with Jamie Radkte to promote the Repeal Amendment. Funny how birds of a feather flock together.
Below is an urgent action letter from Donna Holt, President of Virginia Campaign For Liberty. Please consider donating money and joining Campaign For Liberty. This is a fantastic group and Donna has been THE leader in getting Agenda 21 the attention it deserves. I always pay extra attention to Donna’s positions as she is one smart lady and patriot.
Also contact our local member on the Committee.
11th District: Onzlee Ware He voted against this bill the first time….lets keep the heat on Delegate Ware too….
Here’s Donna’s letter
Speaker Howell is siding with big corporate developers and eco-extremists to rob you of the right to own and control the use of your private property.
He is blocking a critical piece of legislation that is vital to preserving the property rights of every Virginian.
If he has his way, you’ll be forced to forfeit your land in the suburbs for the development of high-density ‘urban development areas’ also called ‘smart growth’.
This is a gross violation of property rights. The inalienable right to own and control the use of private property is perhaps the single most important principle responsible for the growth and prosperity of Virginia.
Virginia Campaign for Liberty is leading the charge against one of the most egregious schemes the political establishment pushes to control our lives and bankrupt our communities.
I am talking about the land use provisions imposed on us in 2007 that Speaker Howell was instrumental in getting passed into law. These provisions are now being used by special interest groups to tag team Virginians with abusive regulations to strip you of your livelihood and property.
You see the corporate developers stand to gain high profits from the construction of up to twelve homes on a single acre of land. They also get huge tax breaks for their green building practices in the “new urbanism design”.
Eco-extremists are heavily funded for their lobby effort to grab and preserve up to 90% of all the land that would be off limits to humans and move you into government controlled high-density feudalistic transit villages.
They use global warming and environmental disaster to scare the citizens and politicians into abolishing private property ownership.
If they have their way, single family homes will be a thing of the past. We’d become mere lease holders of the homes we live in.
The land use provisions passed in 2007 mandating “urban development areas” enables corporate developers and eco-fanatics to capitalize on your loss of property ownership.
You and I have an opportunity to stop this violation of our property rights if we can get HB1721 to the floor for a vote and ultimately passed into law.
HB1721 would simply make “urban development areas” optional rather than mandatory.
If passed, the decision whether or not urban development areas are appropriate for the community would be kept local where it belongs.
It is essential that vital planning decisions for communities stays local, and not in the Capitol, where they can easily be manipulated by nefarious special interests.
Please join me in the fight to pass this crucial legislation!
Contact Speaker Howell today and tell him to stop blocking a vote for HB1721. You can contact him by phone at (804)698-1028 or email email@example.com.
The right to own private property is as sacred as life and liberty.
You either have the right to own property or you become property.
Please act today!
Yours in liberty,
P.S. You and I cannot waste time in making our voices heard to those in Richmond. We must stop the radical agenda that takes away the rights of property owners now.
Contact Speaker Howell and tell him the people of Virginia deserve the right to opt out of UDAs and to allow HB 1721 to be voted on by the full committee. Speaker Howell’s number is (804)698-1028. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
