I received the news through my blog background that Gaston County NC was about to have a resolution debated by its county commissioners to condemn Agenda 21.

The Gaston County Board of Commissioners will consider a resolution condemning Agenda 21 during its regular meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Gaston County Courthouse, 325 N. Marietta St., Gastonia.

There was some good quotes from these patriotic commissioners in this newspaper:

But Loftis believes the county’s resolution “to heighten awareness of Agenda 21’s impact on communities in the United States” is necessary to shed light on a nefarious United Nations initiative.  *  *  *  “The point is, this is something people do need to know about because it’s happening in other parts of the country,” said Commissioner Tracy Philbeck, who referred to Agenda 21 as a “Marxist weapon.’”

Well, I am told that the Gaston County Commissioners DID pass that resolution!

Report from Gaston County Commissioners meeting tonight: Not sure what I was expecting…maybe balloons and champagne flutes for all, choirs and bands, the heavens full of shooting stars. Well, you all know me, I like visual impact and lots of celebrations for good events. Even so, our great commissioners passed, unanimously, the anti-Agenda 21 resolution for Gaston County as part of their consent agenda this evening. There were no dramatics. No arguments against it. The deed is done. The Gaston County Resolution against Agenda 21 is heading to the NC State House for recording.

And other county commissions throughout North Carolina are considering the same thing.  Sounds good to me!  Where’s our next ICLEI victory!
