The Common Sense Property Rights Coalition will meet Monday June 6 at 6 pm at Fred’s Fish House in Mammoth Springs according to Kevin Jotz, Co-chair of the group. The keynote speaker of the evening will be state Representative Jeff Pogue who is running for re-election this year. Pogue will discuss last year’s legislative session, both positive and negative actions, and plans for next year. He will also take questions from those in attendance.
“We will also have two candidates for Oregon County Commission, Greg Barton who is running for Northern Commissioner and Jason Kemper who is running for Southern Commissioner. Other candidates for county office will visit with us next month and in following months until the election,” Jotz said.
“This is an organization concerned with protection of private property rights. The group believes that without protections of private property rights nothing else is secure. The right to own and reasonably use private property is a cornerstone of the U.S. Constitution, differentiating our country from others around the world. As John Adams, one of our nation’s Founding Fathers and our second president, said: ‘The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.’”
