The Iredell County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday night to approve a resolution to stand as a Constitutional Rights Protection County.
The decision came during the regular meeting in the county’s government center.
The resolution was supported by the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Darren Campbell and Commissioner Gene Houpe submitted possible drafts in January.
The resolution reads, “Pursuant to the oaths taken, the Commissioners wish to express their deep commitment to protecting all constitutional rights of the citizens of Iredell County and oppose any law, regulation or other act that would unconstitutionally infringe on the rights of the law-abiding citizens of Iredell County.”
This resolution is one of many considered in counties across the state of North Carolina in recent weeks.
