Letter: Boo for chasing the almighty buck

The Almightier, by Carl Hassmann


Kudos and sincere thanks to County Administrator Chris Baird, County Council members Mary McGann, Gabriel Woytek and Jaylyn Hawks for standing for our community’s health and welfare at the March 11 council meeting.

Rather than listen to medical staff, and contrary to the evidence our medical system would be quickly overwhelmed, others on the council went along with some of the business people and voted against a temporary ban.

Perhaps the fast-moving events of the last couple of days may cause them to reconsider. It’s very lucky and a very good thing we have some leaders who will look out for our wellbeing rather than chase the almighty buck.
