UPDATE: This event has been cancelled. You could still ask the commissioners to support such a resolution on your own.
There is an effort afoot to get the Benton County commissioners to sign a resolution in opposition to I-1639 similar to the resolution signed by Franklin County commissioners on January 29th. The organizer, Lisa Thomas,
will be presenting a copy of the Franklin County resolution to the commissioners at the March 5th, 2019 commissioner meeting. If you can attend to support this resolution, that would be great. The board meeting is at 9:00 AM, Tuesday, Mar. 5 at the Benton County Courthouse in Prosser.
On behalf of Benton County, as a United States citizen, I am requesting that you (elected to represent me) sign a Resolution (just like Franklin County did- first in the State) supporting our Sheriff, and our Constitutional rights.
These gun initiatives are unconstitutional. They are infringing (impairing) my right to bear arms. When you took office, you took an oath: it is your DUTY to protect my rights.
A Resolution by Benton County tells the State, that we support our Sheriff (the CEO of our County); because it is also his duty to protect my rights and uphold the Constitution.
I have attached Franklin County’s template. I will draft my own and will be bringing it to Tuesday’s meeting to present during Public Comment- along with Radona Grossman-Devereaux who WROTE the repeal bill. Please be prepared to sign it.
You can send a supportive email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you can’t make it to the meeting.
