LaFave gambling with public health


Recently state Rep. Beau LaFave has given his full backing to those who oppose mask mandates. He was even gracious to introduce bills that would right the wrong of an unfair mask mandate. At present perhaps LaFave thinks it is politically advantageous to support those who support personal liberty over public health. The debate on masks looks very different when one is watching a loved one battle this disease.

LaFave has gambled his political future on the idea personal freedom outweighs public health. It isn’t just LaFave’s political career that is at stake but also the health of our state. Let’s hope for our sakes, LaFave has chosen well.
