Ottawa Impact is resolved to see individual rights prioritized and freedoms protected in Ottawa County.
To date, over 2,700 people have signed and promoted the Resolution, including Ottawa Impact co-founders Sylvia Rhodea (who drafted the document) and Joe Moss.
The Resolution was publicly signed by Rep. Luke Meerman, Senator Roger Victory, Commissioner Kyle Terpstra, and other local elected leaders from across Ottawa County. If you have ever wondered how Ottawa Impact would recommend a pandemic be handled by local government, read the Resolution.
Constitutional freedoms are not to be suspended in times of crisis.
Ten of the Ottawa County Commissioners refused to sign the Resolution to Restore Freedom and instead allowed unconstitutional orders to continue in Ottawa County.

One thousand parents showed up to the Ottawa County Commissioners’ meeting on Tuesday, August 24, 2021, to voice their disagreement with the one-size-fits-all approach to county mandates which violated religious freedoms and parental rights.
The Ottawa County Commissioners ignored the voices of the people and allowed mask and quarantine orders to be enforced from late August 2021 to January 2022.
