Joe Moss

Ottawa County Board of Commissioners’ Chair Joe Moss smiles as he calls a meeting to order back in February.

Neither an agenda or a packet have been released yet for Ottawa County’s Board of Commissioners’ upcoming meeting on Tuesday, May 23.

But based on a recent Facebook post from the board’s chairperson and Ottawa Impact co-founder Joe Moss, it is expected that the board will be voting on a resolution to, “protect constitutional freedoms in Ottawa County,” which includes the Second Amendment.

Joe - Just a reminder that most of the taxpaying residents of Ottawa County are not paying your and other board members' salaries to play power games while you waste time and resources by forcing your narrow ideological views that serve but a very small segment of county residents. Don't forget - you received only a small percentage of votes by the small group of registered voters who actually voted in the 2022 election.....hardly a mandate by any measure.

Instead, you should consider growing up and actually doing the work that is required by the State of Michigan regarding the duties of boards of county commissioners when considering policies (or, 'resolutions'), "County policies deal largely with the county budget, appropriations, personnel, capital improvements, county services, and other internal matters."


Agreed. The next election will be a turning point I believe.
