We can't afford to allow Governor Walz' illegal orders hurt La Crescent families and businesses any longer. It's time to get our City Council to pass a resolution to open our town back up now!
To the Mayor & City Council,
WHEREAS, it is a human right to travel, conduct trade, assemble and do other things in order to live, and;
WHEREAS, the Declaration of Independence recognizes the right to pursue happiness, and;
WHEREAS, the purpose of the government is to protect people’s rights, and;
WHEREAS, our elected officials took an oath to uphold people’s constitutionally protected rights and are duty bound to abide by that oath, and;
WHEREAS, Governor Walz Emergency Executive Order 20-33 extending the ‘Stay Home’ order closing bars, restaurants and other places clearly violates people’s constitutionally protected rights and are blatantly unconstitutional, and;
WHEREAS, the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution states, “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law; nor deny any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws,”
THEREFORE, be it resolved, we the people of the City of La Crescent, demand you make a motion for and vote yes to pass the Liberate La Crescent Resolution that prevents city resources from enforcing Governor Walz' illegal shutdown orders.
