Letter to the Editor
I would like to thank Commissioners Dixon, Pretz and Roberts for voting against the motion to opt out of the statewide mask mandate. Although I am not a fan of Governor Kelly, I feel a mask mandate is necessary for Miami County. Now I can feel safe shopping in Louisburg again. I just hope the merchants enforce the mandate. The quote by Commissioner Dixon says it all: “To me, it’s such a small thing to do to protect people.”
Thanks to the support of the Trump administration a vaccine is on the horizon, being developed in record time. Let’s stay safe and get through the next few months until the vaccine is available to everyone. This has nothing to do with the infringement of constitutional rights; it’s just common sense.
