Skagit CAPR Chapter Statement of Goals
Whereas government actions in Skagit County often appear to conflict with private property rights and because property rights are the basis for the freedoms we enjoy under natural law, as well as under the Constitutions of the United States and the State of Washington, the membership of the Skagit CAPR Chapter is resolved to:
1. Maintain awareness of state, county and municipal activities that impact on a citizen’s right to use and dispose of his or her property.
2. Raise awareness of and strongly oppose threats to private property use, especially from ill-conceived, top down planning schemes imposed by government bureaucrats.
3. Educate the public about the concerted attack on private property by agencies at all levels of government, as well as Environmental NGO’s.
4. Demand that any restrictions imposed on use of property be unequivocally supported by solid scientific evidence.
5. Coordinate with other CAPR chapters to further the cause of property rights throughout the state and region.
6. Encourage the election of candidates who are committed to defending property rights and maintaining the freedoms our federal and state constitutions guarantee us.
Signs of CAPR
Earlier in the year, thanks to Gary and Paula Clancey, CAPR yard signs were made and distributed to members and friends to display. What a surprise then when returning from a fishing trip, your editor discovered one of the signs in a grassy lot on the other side of Marblemount.
