People before politics – it's time to mask up

To the editor: 

With an increase in the COVID variant, it would be well if our city government could use medical guidance in its decision rather than politics. We need to be pro-life on protecting our citizens! 

It is always important to remember that we all have a responsibility to be a good neighbor and assist each other. To demand a “right” or “freedom” instead of acknowledging our responsibility is wrong-headed thinking. 

I respect all opinions, but City Council members must think about the good of the whole community. Our doctors use masks for a reason, and we should also. 

Let us work together for the good of all and protect each other.
