Farmer avoids conviction for bashing over native vegetation laws by calling for moratorium of state law and says he's prepared to fight on any charges of vandalism and theft, but is reluctant to comment on whether the incident was connected to his views

Farmer avoids conviction for bashing over native vegetation la포커 의 신ws by calling for moratorium of state law and says he's prepared to fight on any charges of vandalism and theft, but is reluctant to comment on whether the incident was connected to his views.

"I'm a Republican," he said.

Kendrick said a recent news report about an earlier brush fire at his family's property showed he was "very angry" about "hundreds of thousands of dollars" in charges being laid.

But he acknowledged that even though he had been accused of destroying native vegetation, the allegations did not seem to have hur구리출장안마t his political fortunes, so he agreed to do some interview on an independent project.

"No one is talking, but my whole life is about my family," said Kendrick, 43, of Southfield.

He is planning to attend a town hall meeting set for Tuesday in his rural community, where he'll be discussing his views on the state's native-plant laws. In addition to his association with farmers, Kendrick has been a supporter of the Green Party for about 15 years and had worked for the Michigan Club for Democracy, a conservative-leaning political party in Ann Arbor.

Rudy Martin, president of the Michigan Farm Bureau Federation, said he is still waiting to see whether Kendrick's comments are relevant to the fire.

While Kendrick said his group doesn't support the state law that mandates native-planting on most of Michigan's 300,000 acres of land, he said if Native Plants Protection Act were used, some native vegetation would b파라오 카지노e destroyed. The "native-planting" law, he said, violates the First Amendment to the Constitution.

Kendrick said he's received little publicity from the county and Michigan Department of Natural Resources in connection with the incident, and he didn't know the county could not issue a citation against him.

He described himself as a Republican and declined to comment on whether he believed in the state's natural-life laws but also noted that Michigan has an income tax.

"There are people in my position that would call myself racist," Kendrick said. "But why go out on a limb? I'm just trying to grow."
