Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett Letter to the Community Regarding Face-Coverings

Yet, the government’s role does in face make mandates. The government sets speed limits, creates zoning, develops ordinances, and sets policy, but in this generation, the government has never told people to wear a mask and social distance. A mandate that some of us believe infringes upon personal freedoms.
