Speaking on behalf of the Concerned Citizens of Curry, we are writing to voice our concern over losing control of our local sovereignty. You voted to give up our rights as an independent county when you turned our health over to the state and for bad reasons.
Curry County Board of Commissioners voted to disband Curry County Public Health, allowing the Oregon Health Authority to take over the duties in Curry County. This was a terrible mistake. A better decision could have been reached and we will be watching in hope that you will re-vote to reverse that decision. Meanwhile, you follow lockstep at the hip with Kate Brown’s edicts though her overreach has been disastrous for local businesses and our community.
Our children need to go to school for in person learning and they should not be commanded to wear masks. This is child abuse. Vaccination mandates such as we’re now seeing are equally abusive and a violation of civil rights. If you vote to close local businesses or make it hard for them to operate, you will deal a final death blow to our irreplaceable gem of a county and there will be little or no reason for people to want to either visit or live here.
Top-down government makes people move to Florida. Think about it and return control of Curry County back to the people. That’s the right and constitutional thing to do. We live here. Give us our county back!
