Using taxpayers' dollars to pay these court attorney fees, especially when attacking established and traditional American values is absurd.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 4, 2005
The Committee to Support the Original Los Angeles County Seal is kicking off the newly formed alliance with the American Legion. The American Legion has long been a defender of the Boy Scouts and Freedom of Religious Expression.
The Legion, at the National Level has come to the support of the Seal Committee in their effort to gather signatures. This will place the Original LA County Seal on the June 6, 2006 ballot, giving Los Angeles voters the right to determine the future of the seal and cross.
According to various polls, the residents of the county favor retention of the Original Seal by 92%.
The event is set for June 4, 2005 at 2 p.m. at an estate located at 1823 Foothill Blvd, La Canada-Flintridge, CA 91011. This will be the beginning of the alliance and joint efforts to battle the ACLU and retain the County Seal.
In addition to the County Seal effort, the two groups are mobilizing their base of support for H.R.2679, Public Expression of Religion Act (PERA). Rep. John Hostettler(R-IN) has introduced H.R. 2679 and it is now in committee.
David Hernandez leader of the petition drive and Thomas P. Cadmus, National Commander of the American Legion stated, "Using taxpayers' dollars to pay these court attorney fees, especially when attacking established and traditional American values is absurd."
Receiving the award on behalf of the American Legion is Mr. Reese Lloyd. Lloyd is the former attorney for Cesar Chavez and a former ACLU attorney.
