This is just a quick dairy - basically an alert.

Do you want your local tax dollars paying for extremist ALEC policies?

Now is the time to say no and to start continually monitoring your local officials.
It appears ALEC has started a new program focusing on city and county officials.

For almost 40 years we didn't say no to ALEC at the state legislative level and look where it got us.

It is up to us to take action with our local officials
city and county officials
 and let them know
- we are not okay with them becoming ALEC / Kochwhores.

The American City County Exchange works with local elected officials to promote efficiency and minimize waste by implementing limited government, free market solutions. The American City County Exchange is an affiliate of the American Legislative Exchange Council.
This time - we can't afford to play catch-up.
It's our responsibility to stop this - while we can.
Hopefully it's not too late already.

It's evidently too late in Page, AZ

“ ACCE helps connect me with other municipal officials who desire more efficiency and economic freedom in their communities.”
 –Levi Tappan, City Councilman  | Page, Arizona
Already parroting the ALEC meme - for what - free corporate scholarships?

Nothing below the squiggle.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
