Free the people of Cowlitz County

Below is a resolution that I am working to submit at a hearing, but for it to pass, it will need strong support from the people. I'll cross post it on Facebook.


Yes, it is controversial but destroying the county (and state and country) is not a sensible solution to any problem.

WHEREAS, in CASE NO. C20-5423 BHS (UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON AT TACOMA), “Governor Inslee argues that the Court lacks jurisdiction to consider the claims against him because he does not have any connection with the enforcement of the Proclamations;” and

BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Commissioners of Cowlitz County that:
