The issue of Property Rights is one of the most important issues to me - from before my election as the Courtland Representative on the Board of Supervisors through today - and will always be very important to me.
I tie each Citizen's property rights to Liberty and our Founding Fathers. Virginia's very own George Mason wrote The Virginia Declaration of Rights, which was drafted and adopted by the Fifth Virginia Convention at Williamsburg in 1776 and became a foundational document for both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.
Section 1 of that document states:
That all men are by nature equally free and independent and have certain inherent rights, of which, when they enter into a state of society, they cannot, by any compact, deprive or divest their posterity; namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety.
While on serving on the Board, I have had the opportunity to protect our property rights. Below are a few examples.
