“End Gov. Inslee’s Discriminatory Covid Vaccine & Mask Orders”
On December 30th, 2021, a historic Mini-Initiative petition with 11,505 signatures was certified and forwarded to the Clark County Council calling for a public meeting and vote on an ordinance that:
PROHIBITS ANY AND ALL DISCRIMINATORY MANDATES, ORDERS OR COMPULSORY REQUIREMENTS WITHIN CLARK COUNTY BUILDINGS OR LAND USE THAT DISCRIMINATES AGAINST AN INDIVIDUAL BASED ON HIS OR HER CURRENT HEALTH STATUS, VIOLATES HEALTH PRIVACY OR THAT DOES NOT HONOR HEALTH, RELIGIOUS OR MORAL OBJECTORS IN AN EQUITABLE MANNER.
Over the past several months, the CCRP Executive Board, the 17th Legislative District Committee, and the 18th Legislative District Committee approved resolutions supporting the effort to prohibit all discriminating mandates. Then, on November 30th, 2021, the Clark County Republican Central Committee unanimously approved the attached resolution which “calls on all elected officials & candidates for office within Clark County to vigilantly speak & act to end Inslee’s discriminatory Covid Vaccine & Mask orders.”
It’s very clear and simple, Republicans must stand together against these discriminatory mandates as our party’s platform declares: “Repeal laws that establish special privileges of one group or segment of the citizenry over others.”
For almost two years now, Governor Inslee has issued mandates and orders which have been an oppressive and functional form of socialism forced upon the citizens of Clark County. Our party platform clearly states: “The Clark County Republican Party strongly opposes Socialism both as an ideology and as a way of governance at any level of government.” The time to push back is now, before more damage is done to our Constitutional Republic and the foundational principles of representative government are further eroded.
We call on all Clark County Republicans to strongly encourage the Clark County Council to pass the ordinance when they meet on February 1st. As the attached resolution states, all Republican elected officials should “vigilantly speak & act to end Inslee’s discriminatory Covid Vaccine & Mask orders.”
Clark County Council members now have the opportunity to stand with Clark County Republicans on February 1st and pass an ordinance banning government mandates or orders which facilitate discrimination. We strongly urge them to listen to their constituents and vote to prohibit discriminatory mandates!
