I want to go on record supporting our Commissioners and their 1st Amendment Rights. Also pledging $10,000.00 for legal fees and promotional materials. If you would like to join me feel free to do do. It's time to take a stand ! I believe the meeting starts at 6 pm, I will keep you up dated on Monday."
