KEEP YOUR MAYOR HOME – ask the LOCAL GOVERNMENT to DEFUND TRIPS to RIO for RIO+20!

Talk of the Sound wrote this article where they clarified that the Mayor of New Rochelle was not planning after all to attend the Agenda 21 Rio+20 conference. They had reported (certainly accurately) that Mayor Bramson was attending.  Apparently he changed his mind:

While it is our conclusion that a correction is not in order, we do want to make a clarification and we offer it here: Mayor Noam Bramson has stated that he was not aware of any such conference, never intended to go and never said publicly or privately that he planned to attend.

I think activists in New Rochelle and other cities, counties and towns need to ask their municipal leaders:  Are anyone going to attend Rio+20 on behalf of our community?  Regardless of the answer, ask them to defund the travel budget for this event.  There’s other needs in the community to fulfill:  Schools, roads, traffic lights etc.  It’s unconstitutional for a local official to attend anyway.  Starve the beast!

    Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
