"Federal agencies have failed miserably at their land management responsibilities, every summer we see the results of that as we watch our forests, watersheds and millions of animals burn"
CEDAR CITY, UT, August 25, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Several Utah Elected Officials have joined forces to organize an event to honor, pay respect, and pledge continued support to preserve Western Culture, Lifestyle, Heritage, Family Values and Freedom.
The "Western Freedom Festival" will be held October 23rd in Cedar City, Utah.
The Western Freedom Festival will feature a full day of educational learning opportunities with conference tracks including Public Lands, Federal Advantages & Failures, and States Rights. The event also includes educational outreach opportunities for elementary school students through a "Hope of America" essay contest. The event will conclude with a Live Concert by Country Music Star Darryl Worley.
The Western Freedom Festival is an attempt to educate the world about the negative impact progressive policies are having on the health, safety and welfare of citizens in the West. The event is intended to celebrate our heritage and culture and bring awareness to the efforts to destroy those cultures, traditions, and lifestyles. Event organizers believe Western culture and tradition is under assault and that conservative family values, faith, hard work and entrepreneurism is being displaced by negativity toward these values. The event organizers feel that, honest hard working Americans are being put out of business, targeted and discriminated against and entire industries dependent upon natural resources are being destroyed while wealth building jobs continue to be outsourced to foreign nations.
Utah Congressman Chris Stewart said it best "The Federal Government has been a lousy landlord for Western States". It is time to let the world see and understand what is happening to the good people of the west.
Garfield County Commissioner Leland Pollock States: "The Western Freedom Festival is a response to all of the abuse western rural communities have been dealing with for years. We know we have solid cultural values, however we are constantly under attack by special interest groups, the federal government and many other forces that are constantly trying to change our lives. The land is our life-blood, we are surrounded by an ocean of public land yet the freedom to use that land is vanishing. One would never think our religious freedoms would be under attack, yet we all know what has happened regarding Christian values. This is not a one night celebration, this is our chance to stand on the national stage in front of the national news and make a difference."
Iron County Commissioner David Miller states "This is an opportunity to celebrate who we are, what we stand for, and what we are willing to do going forward to stop the abuse of our citizens health, safety and welfare, these are the most patriotic people on the planet who would do anything to preserve their heritage and culture, it is our job as elected officials to protect and defend that."
Beaver County Commissioner Mark Whitney Stated "We need to do everything possible to ensure our lifestyles, Culture, Values, and Heritage are preserved for future generations, unfortunately kids today are forced to abandon much of that and relocated to the cities to survive"
Piute County Commissioner Darin Bushman Stated "Federal agencies have failed miserably at their land management responsibilities, every summer we see the results of that as we watch our forests, watersheds and millions of animals burn"
