For far too long, local governments have been ignored by conservatives. Consequently, they have become a domain of the left, with rubber stamping politicians and entrenched bureaucrats quietly adopting liberal ideas without question or opposition.
The Bad News
Currently, efforts to “reimagine” our communities are taking place in our own backyards. Whether this means putting residents on road diets, ripping out perfectly good roads to force walking, biking, and public transit use, adopting radical climate action plans that eliminate the use of fossil fuels, adopting radical air quality control measures that restrict travel, or forcing density, eliminating parking spaces, and other land use policies to limit people to oppressive 15-min cities.
The Good News
The good news is, engaging with local government poses a tremendous and untapped opportunity to thwart this authoritarian agenda, and it’s EASY TO DO! Activists across the state are already winning battles and you can join their efforts now.
