The mayor should be making available to all city residents masks and gloves.
There is not a store or location in this city where one can purchase a mask – which is now required for residents out on their public business throughout the city.
With no masks available, such edicts are made useless, or almost useless.
What would it take to appropriate $50,000-$100,000 from the city’s emergency fund to purchase masks for distribution at locations throughout the city?
And what would it take for the mayor to announce a community effort to raise money to make masks available?
The ancient Greeks said it best – doing something is not the crime. Doing nothing is the crime.
