“I think the mayor is genuinely doing his best with the purpose of saving lives and preventing the spread of COVID, which is commendable. But I’m not only worried about people’s lives, I’m also worried about their livelihood. I’d prefer if the mayor would have listened strictly to the suggestions of the economic recovery committee. My call to have a blueprint to be able to open businesses safely went largely ignored. Now thousands of business will have to wait until a code enforcement officer can create a plan for each individual business.”
