Peterjohn sends mixed messages on Agenda 21

Sedgwick County Commissioner Karl Peterjohn isn’t shy about saying that he has voted three times against the county participating in a $1.5 million federal sustainable planning grant. But he stressed during a meeting with The Eagle editorial board that he never mentioned “Agenda 21.” Some have tried to link the planning grant to an obscure two-decade-old, nonbinding United Nations document that they think could force us to ride bicycles and live in high-rises. Peterjohn didn’t seem to want to be associated with such conspiracy talk. Yet a campaign mailer Peterjohn gave The Eagle noted how he voted against “Agenda 21 grants.”
