While all the doctors and medical professionals recommend wearing a mask, we have some people in the community who are against it.

Rock Gibboney is one. City Council President Jay Musleh is another, as is the Marion County Commission.

Those who have voted against the mandate to wear masks should be voted out of office. The same goes for Sheriff Billy Woods and Mayor Kent Guinn.

How on earth do we get people in office that are smarter than the medical professionals? Let’s get together and get them out of office.
