Follow-up on the Locke Amish

For those who read my earlier posts...

Defending The Amish
Defending The Amish (Part 2)
Fusco's Law & The Amish

... I'm pleased to report that last month the Locke town board met and wisely decided not to accept their attorney's recommendation to implement a law requiring that Amish contractors have liability insurance to do work in the town.

Several long-witheld building permit applications have now been issued.

The people were heard. The democratic process worked. All of which goes to show that the best form of government is by elected representatives on a small and localized level.

Thank you for the update. I had been so worried that this discrimination would continue and there really didn't seem to be any bright spots on the horizon. The nice thing about 'local' representatives is that they must live with the people they represent.

Thanks again,

The Amish are not fareing so well in Wisconsin though

BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis. - An Amish man could be barred from living in his home after a judge agreed with state officials that he violated several codes in constructing the building.
