Benton County Community Rights Coalition
Benton County Community Rights Coalition We are one of many communities bubbling up across the country to demand the rights guaranteed citizens by the US and State Constitutions. The right to local self-governance is a fundamental and inalienable right. The Declaration of Independence's assertion that governments are instituted to secure the rights of people; Section 1 of the Oregon Constitution which recognizes that "all power is inherent in the people"; Article VI, Section 10 of the Oregon Constitution which guarantees home rule powers to Counties; and Section 203.035 of Chapter 203 of the Oregon Revised Statutes, which grants counties ordinance-making power to address matters of County concern.
