TENNESSEE – Today, County Mayor Andy Ogles released a Proclamation calling on the Tennessee General Assembly to convene a Special Session to address Governor Bill Lee and his continued abuses of power. In the Proclamation Mayor Ogles calls on the General Assembly to defend freedom, liberty and individual rights by addressing the following:
1. Limit the powers of Governor of Tennessee and his abuse of Emergency Powers using unconstitutional executive orders, which infringe on the liberties of the citizens of this state.
2. Protect the children of Tennessee from forced mask wearing and respect the individual choices of parents to manage the health and wellbeing of their own children.3. Protect ALL people of Tennessee from forced vaccination for COVID-19 whether by government or businesses both as consumers and employees.
In the proclamation, Ogles acknowledges the seriousness of Covid-19 and gives a reminder that Covid is treatable with sophisticated treatment protocols, therapeutics and that vaccines are widely available.
He criticizes Governor Lee’s indecisiveness and half measures which have subjugated parents and their children to out of control school boards and superintendents, liberal Mayors and a complicit Commissioner of Education.‘At a time when truly conservative Governors are aggressively fighting against both local AND federal assaults on our freedoms, Governor Lee is taking the twisting path to appease the Left and their allies,’ said Mayor Ogles.
In addition to calling on the General Assembly, Mayor Ogles asks Tennesseans to have their voices heard and to reach out to their legislators.
In closing Ogles states, ‘It is time to stand, … And when the final lots are cast and we are measured against history, I pray that we will have preserved freedom for generations to come. And if we are to err, let us err on the side of freedom. The choice is ours, and I choose freedom. ‘”
