To have striven, to have made the effort, to have been true to certain ideals - this alone is worth the struggle. -William Penn
On May 1st, 2012, Mayor Micheal Williams (correct spelling) of Union County, Tennessee. wrote a letter to the Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization rescinding his membership in the Plan ET Regional five-county Smart Growth agenda. In my recent article, Mind Control and Smart Growth, I discussed the seven five-county forums we attended in their Series II. Union County was the last forum held in the series.
Rocky Top Freedom Campaign is fortunate to have some very wonderful and driven activists, researchers, and members. In particular, our Co-Chairman, Tommy Helms, and our Anti-Agenda 21 Coordinator, Kathleen Marquardt, were instrumental in speaking with Mayor Williams about the threats of Smart Growth to Union County.
Tommy and his family plan on moving to Union County in the near future and this is the reason Tommy made his first solo visit to Mayor Williams of Union County. A couple months later, Tommy and Kathleen visited with Mayor Williams to discuss with him Plan ET and UN Agenda 21. The Mayor stated he certainly was not for Smart Growth or the elimination of private property rights via UN Agenda 21.

Tommy and Kathleen were pleased to hear this news. When Mayor Williams stated that the previous Mayor of Union County, Larry Lay, had signed onto Plan ET, Tommy and Kathleen suggested to the Mayor that perhaps he could send a letter rescinding Union County's membership in Plan ET. The Mayor said he'd think about it. Tommy's research found that the previous Mayor of Union County, Larry Lay, had signed onto Plan ET on August 3, 2010. Several emails to the Mayor and telephone conversations with the Mayor's secretary ensued.
On May 3, 2012, Tommy received an email from the Mayor's secretary stating she was sending him a copy of the Mayor's letter in a separate email. This letter was rescinding Union County's membership in Plan ET. [Link]
This is the way every-day American citizens can be active and shut down Smart Growth in their communities and keep their God-given, constitutionally-guaranteed, private property rights.
I hope the efforts of Tommy and Kathleen inspire everyone to continue the fight against the Communitarian overthrow of our once great Representative Republic by UN Agenda 21.
