For Local Kids, We Need A Plan, Not Platitudes

Recently, Supervisor Rodefer released a blog post on MyMotherLode speaking on the COVID-19 crisis. As I was reading it, I kept track of actual positions for any issue. 

My final total: 1. Maybe.

It took 806 words to say schools should reopen, but with no consideration for how or impacts of doing so. Instead, we are presented with platitudes. Something for everyone without anything substantial.

Stop the Mask Wars



I'm calling it. Mask debate officially over.

Like most of you, I'm tired of the fighting we see over masks and public health. Let's be real –– those arguments aren't changing minds. It just further divides us and whichever side you find your opinion on, we are in uncharted, troubling waters. . .

Government Innovation –– Too much to ask?

In facing COVID, the County is setting a lot of "you can't" standards –– and for generally good reasons –– but we don't see a lot of "you can" solutions being offered up and it makes me wonder, is innovation and flexibility something we really should be expecting of our elected leaders?
