The First Amendment Sanctuary Resolution calls Governor Northam's executive orders unconstitutional and instructs the sheriff and county employees to refrain from enforcing the orders.
"We're not gonna utilize county resources to enforce the governor's orders," said Supervisor Matt Cline. "We're not gonna allow county resources to be used in the enforcement by state agencies. We're not gonna aid the Virginia Department of Health in shutting our businesses down."
The resolution specifically defies Executive Orders 63 and 67. Executive Order 63 mandates the statewide wearing of masks in all public indoor spaces, and Executive Order 67 provides direction on how businesses are allowed to re-open.
"The Campbell County Board of Supervisors wishes to express its opposition to any order or law that would unconstitutionally restrict the rights of the citizens of Campbell County," said Cline.
