Board of Supervisors call for Amendment to U.S. Constitution
The Mendocino County Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a resolution calling for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution at its August 27 meeting in Ukiah.
Their Resolution called for an amendment that said only human beings are endowed with Constitutional rights and that donations to political campaigns are not Free Speech and can be regulated.
The Supervisors’ action was called for by citizens’ Measure F, which county voters passed by a 74.71% to 25.29%. Measure F was a signature-driven citizens initiative put on the 2012 ballot by volunteers from the Move to Amend Coalition of Mendocino County.
The Board of Supervisors also voted to support Move To Amend’s amendment proposal, House Joint Resolution 29 (H.J.R. 29), the We The People Amendment, that was introduced into the House of Representatives on February 14, 2013 by Representative Rick Nolan of Minnesota.
