Letter to the Editor

Writer Objects to UN Directive in Local Planning

web posted February 7, 2012

Dear Citizens of Edgefield County,
I in no way suggest that Tobe Holmes is out to harm the community. I went to school with him, I know his family. I don't think he would knowingly subject us to harm. I ask you to do one small research experiment if you will...everybody who reads this please, give a second of your time.

Go to ICLEI webpage, http://www.iclei.org/index.php?id=iclei-home Click on "Services" tab at top of page. Click on "Publications" then scroll down to "ICLEI Papers" and click on "ICLEI Paper 2011-1 : Global Environmental Governance: The Role of Local Governments." Now read the last paragraph on page 5 ...if this disturbs you, read the rest of this document that is available for everyone to see.

Now, check the member tab at the top of the page and make sure your mayor or county council has not signed your county up for this madness.

Hard to believe this is happening across America right now isn't it? Use Google, use you-tube. There is a host of information out there.

The main reason for my concern? Charlotte is an ICLEI city. Would you like to see your land, or your home or your car taxed so high you cannot afford it in an effort to drive you into a "village" where mass transit will be available? Sorry, but I don't think the USA was founded on these beliefs.

Agreed, our country has major governmental problems, but bringing the United Nations in at a local level under blatantly false pretenses is NOT the answer. The very name they go by, "Local Governments for Sustainability" is not true. Please read this organization's webpage, it doesn't take long to see what the agenda is.

Most people are unaware such an organization even exists, and is being pushed into county's at a very local level, through "Vision 20/20 Strategic Plan" incentives or groups, such as what the Edgefield Alliance just informed me they were here as part of... Now I wonder why gas and food prices have steadily been rising.

As stated before, knowledge is power, for the citizens and the people who lead us, all I want is for people to know what ICLEI is, and be prepared.
