Say goodbye to ICLEI.
The international organization, created by the United Nations to gather local governments around the world in a commitment to sustainable development, is leaving Clallam County.
The City of Sequims membership in ICLEI lapsed at the end of September.
Clallam County Administrator Jim Jones has been directed by the county commissioners to remove the annual $1,200 payment for county dues to ICLEI from the next budget. Unless the commissioners act before Dec. 6 to rescind that decision, the new budget will reflect the commissioners order.
ICLEI, which is formally known as ICLEI: Local Governments for Sustainability, has been the subject of heated debate for the past few years, with the Concerned Citizens of Clallam County taking a stance against local membership.

Its not a question of being green, he said.
Everyone should be green. Its authority. Thats the question, Paulbitski said.
Good news some are waking up. Unfortunately the town next to me has just implemented ‘sustainable development’. *sigh*
A Washington State local story...in Breaking news?
ICLEI and it's operatives in the US lure councils to fall under their spell with the promise of grants and free software to help them implement international policy on a local level.
This is a great step. Especially considering it happened in the Pacific Northwest where international sentiment runs high.
TEXOKIE don’t you have an agenda 21 ping list?
Some recognize the value of this, and others would rather gripe and “tell the teacher”. Don’t assume that your lack of appreciation of the import of this article speaks for everyone. Thank you.
Help me out if there is a breach of protocol .
This doesn't keep the bureaucrats working for the city from consulting and instituting ICLEI policies. It's the philosophy that is so insidious, as is taught in public schools. It's not going away so easily as by canceling a membership subscription.
As far as I am concerned .... THIS IS BREAKING NEWS...more cities and counties need to hear this!!!!
Good news Bump.
May God guide our course.
Okay...if you say so. Just seemed a bit much to me.
Thanks for this post. It’s extremely important people know whatever news comes along about Agenda 21, and I believe personally the local effect of the what I consider covert actions of the Left, and the ICLEI in creating State, and local government rules, and regulations to the U.N., thus International standards.
The enemy within again. Whittling away at our sovereignty.
Yes indeed! Thanks for the ping!
That's true, but there are some good points.
1. Everytime Agenda 21 and ICLEI is mentioned in the media, more people take note and wonder what it is about.
2. Now when we go to council meetings at which more takings are being proposed we can stand and say, "This sounds like Agenda 21", or "THIS SOUNDS LIKE ICLEI"
3. Maybe we will reach the point where the liberals are as afraid to hear that accusation come up as the republicans are about the charge of "racist".
Pinging the Agenda 21 list!
Please FReepmail me if you want on or off the list!
Thanks for the ping!
Thanks. Good info and leads.
National Association of Counties
[More info re. “sustainability,” etc....]
You are welcome!
You got my attention. I’m looking around to see what’s already in my County (or not) while brushing up on recruiting, tactics, Rules of Order, etc. (was active in family rights in the past). I doubt that there’s anything going on here, except for the current attacks against property rights and other rights, so this is probably going to take a few years.
...also need to look up the Tea Party’s platform (if exists on national or local level) before going to that (if exists locally) or starting a new, bipartisan effort for property rights. Yes...one issue (even young dudes with dreadlocks welcome).
Wow! Good job! You are inspiring me back!
