We have been asked who we are, what motivates us, and why do we exist? We thought it might be appropriate to document, for those that do not know us, why we freely spend countless hours attending meetings, speaking to like minded groups, and researching topics that impact the lives of all Lake County residents.
To those that are left of center on the political spectrum, especially the far left, you may want to stop reading now. We caution you that our beliefs and values outlined below will be counter to yours, and we certainly do not want to cause any physical or mental anguish to you or, by extension, your loved ones.
We will be kind, tolerant, and patient with everyone, but we will NEVER BE SILENT!
Lobbyists for Citizens is an apolitical, grassroots citizens’ group with a primary mission to ensure that all Lake County, Oho officials are honest and transparent in the execution of their duties; that all political sub-divisions are good stewards of the taxpayers’ money, and that they all are accountable to Lake County citizens.
We firmly believe that the United States is a constitutional Republic, a nation of laws, and a sovereign nation. The first amendment to the U.S. Constitution is sacrosanct in preserving the individual rights and liberties of the U.S. citizens. The freedom of religion, speech, press, to peaceably assemble, and the right to petition our government for any redress of grievances are paramount for a free society.
We believe in the principles of the assumption of innocence until proven guilty, property rights, and the right to the protection of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all human beings.
Any public official that acts counter to these basic principles by wielding the power of their office to the detriment of the citizens, either by their words or actions, will be exposed to the general public with documentation of their words or actions.
We will not endorse or support any candidate, but will deal strictly with any Federal, State or local issues that impact our country, the State of Ohio, or the Lake County citizens.
We will not accept any donations from any group or individuals so that we can be totally neutral, and in compliance with the State of Ohio’ Legislative Inspector General’s regulations, regarding issues impacting Lake County citizens, our state or federal government.
