Editor: I’m writing this letter to you and copies will be sent to the Mohave County Board of Supervisors.
This is about the articles in the paper regarding becoming a constitutional sanctuary county and city.
It appears to me that the reason for this is that certain people who have called themselves the Lake Havasu City Patriots are behind this movement. It doesn’t seem to me that’s who they are. What they want from my understanding is that they don’t want to abide by the health and safety rules that we all should be doing. If we don’t work together (as right now we’re not), this virus is not going to get better. Mask wearing, social distancing, etc. have worked. Just look at the facts. We need to keep doing this.
Just look at the rate of increase of cases and deaths. The hospitals are overwhelmed and no ICU beds available. We need to listen to the experts (CDC, Mohave County Health Director) and not to people who feel their rights are being taken away because of a “phony-baloney pandemic”. We need strong leaders that can make the hard decisions for people and get us on the right track. I feel that a lot of the public is unaware of this movement. Lots of people don’t get the paper and aren’t socializing as much so communication isn’t been shared. For a few members of the board, making a decision like this needs a great deal of thought. We don’t want to have unintentional consequences.
