( A Sneak Peak into events in one of the most Conservative Counties in the
State. Assume that YOU will face this too at some point )
Ron Branstner brought this issue to your attention at an event in OTC on April
28. Find his comments below as well as the video (5:51min) link.
It confirms information you have previously heard/ read from Branstner and Tom
Residents in the Otter Tail County area,
Below you will find a link to a short but extremely informative video regarding
HUD's Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH).
On May 19, 50 residents of the Ottertail county area attended a public hearing
in Fergus Falls to address a possible agreement between HUD and Ottertail County
which would dissolve the HRA. Those 50 in attendance objected to the agreement,
then sat quietly as the unelected HRA Board, which includes four of five current
OTC Commissioners, thanked them for their research and involvement to understand
this issue. On June 16, that OTC HRA Board proceeded to vote in favor of the
agreement and rejected the people's concerns.
The video is educational as to what the unelected OTC County HRA Board agreed to.
Please be advised, if the County receives these grants shared within the video,
by way of HUD, the taxpayers can be subjugated and restricted to the agreement
with strings attached within the grants. HUD is not an elected body and has no
authority to force a community to accept the strict guidelines. It is a
voluntary agreement. Yet, the strings within the HUD grants commit the county to
abide or else. If the county does not comply to the stipulations written within
the grants, the county could face legal challenges.
When legal challenges arise, who will be responsible? Not the unelected OTC HRA
Board or the OTC Commissioners who sit on the board.
Otter Tail County constituents will have no one to go to with their concerns.
Their local officials will have voluntarily given their power, by way of federal
grants/ agencies and boards, to local unelected bureaucrats.
Please watch the short video below to see what the OTC County HRA Board signed
with HUD's AFFH agreement, and how it could affect you as a resident and/or
taxpayer, either by forced integration or negligence to comply.
