    Lane County, Oregon, rejected ICLEI last summer!

  4. Sir,
    I just hope and pray you are correct, but I just can not let it go. I have spent a lots of money and hours and trips at my own expense to learn about this” agenda21, Sustainable Development, ICLEI, international baccualearate Association in the Schools .” I continue to
    Try to learn how to stop ICLEI. I don’t believe the story these people are telling you
    The first lie Began by these people , Jim Shipley stating Cookeville only joined ICLEI in 2010. That’s the first lie. The city of Cookeville joined 2000-2001 when Womack was mayor. I have a hard copy of what I am telling you and its in ICLEI s’ own words. This hard copy shows Cookeville donated tax dollars in 2009. I have also learned this is United Nations agenda and all of these addresses are the same. Agenda21 is also a part of this stuff . These people have , rails and trails , bike paths, going green ,nineteen mile bike and walking paths, mr mills in the last four weeks stated a buzz word and this city is on a 2030 plan.
    These people are amazing . I have noticed in this Putnam county three cities Cookeville, Monterey, Baxter are reworking depot. Baxter and Monterey are building new Depot from ground up . No real passenger trains , only on special days is their a passenger train and travels a very short distance.there is not enough passengers to pay for the fuel. 2005 a bond was issued to Putnam County , Algood ,Monterey , Cookeville. This 2.5 million project will run from Cookeville to Monterey.
    James Mills – Cookeville planning Director stated ,”this is all in our urban growth boundry.
    I looked this one up and it’s prt of Agenda21 United Nations program .then their the green power providers program. So, I am treating this like these people are lieing to us. Please let me know just what you think.

  5. I just really think you for your hard work. This is a long and difficult journey we have and I intend to complete it. My children and Grand children’s future depend on my work on this one.
    . I will certianally need your prayers . I am a talker and ex- Electrolux agent. I am a retired professional , city fireman.
    I would appreciate any and all information you can supply me with on this one.

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