Eagle River, the Mature Police Department

Kirk Bangstad

Way to go Eagle River, instead of throwing a temper tantrum you intelligently explained the intent of Evers’ mask mandate—voluntary public mask wearing, because it will protect those vulnerable in our state. You then state the various instances where the police may become involved if people enter businesses where they are asked to mask up and refuse.

I challenge an anti-masker or mask proponent to take issue with this statement. It is simply logical, well written, compassionate, and a-political. This is what we need from all our police departments and our state legislature during a time of pandemic and economic collapse.

Be straightforward with us. Tell us what we need to hear to be safe, and tell us what you’re going to to to make sure we don’t fall through the cracks and can still put food on the table.

Rob Swearingen, what are you telling your constituents to reassure them you’re doing the best you can to make sure none of them fall through the cracks?

Are you explaining to them why you haven’t met for 3 months to figure out what to do next during the biggest emergency Wisconsin has faced in our lifetimes?

I promise as your state representative, I will do everything in my power to act like the Eagle River Police Department during times of emergency and work tirelessly to make sure no one falls through the cracks. Even if I can’t give my constituents good news, at least they will get the news straight from me without any political spin designed to divide.
