To my elected representatives and fellow citizens:
I am an advocate for preserving “Private Property Rights” for all of us and especially for our children. This is not a liberal or conservative issue.
I prompted the narrator for the Broadcasters Forum to ask our GOP candidates for US Congress what they knew about Agenda 21 and what the impact would be on local governments. Every candidate expressed basic knowledge of the topic. Liz Chaney stated it had “a foreign component” and Ex Teton County Commissioner and State Legislator Christensen knocked the ball out of the park by stating the code word to get Agenda 21 actions past the local yokels is to call it some version of "Comprehensive Land use Planning."
Our local elected officials claimed they had never heard of Agenda 21 a few years ago when they reduced citizens Private Property Rights by adopting the “Cheyenne Unified Development Code (UDC).” This attached article by Tom DeWeese may describe the results of their willful ignorance. The series of 10-minute videos at
Remember, Platte County Commissioners flatly reject the Land-Use-Plan proposed by the Agenda 21 contractors. The citizens on the Cheyenne Planning Commission that endorsed PlanCheyenne, voted to kill the power transfer hidden in the UDC. I think it is time for a serious review of the 290 page Cheyenne UDC by local citizens with a good eraser in hand as requested by the citizens at every public hearing on the UDC.
I support M. Lee for Commissioner. M. Lee states the obvious in direct language and beings issues to the County Commissioners for resolution.
I support the reelection of Commissioner Amber Ash. Amber does her homework and took the time to work with a group of concerned citizens to propose over 100 amendments to improve PlanCheyenne.

- First HUD is forcing every community which is applying for its grants to complete an “Assessment of Fair Housing” to identify all “contributing factors” to discrimination. These include a complete break down of race, income levels, religion and national origin of every single person living there. They use this information to determine if the neighborhood meets a preset “balance,” determined by HUD.
- Second, HUD demands a detailed plan showing how the community intends to eliminate the “contributing factors” to this “imbalance.”
- To produce the community’s plan for compliance, HUD rules demand that a wide array of “interested parties” participate in its creation, just to assure community input and to keep things fair, of course. These include civil rights groups, affordable housing developers and civic activist organizations. They call this “civil society.” All have a specific, left-of center agenda and a definite interest in the outcome.
- Once the plan is prepared, then the community is required to sign an agreement to take no actions that are “materially inconsistent with its obligation to affirmatively further fair housing.”
- Once the community provides answers as to how they will implement the grant under these guidelines to HUD’s satisfaction, then they will receive the grant.
