(Monday - December 14, 2020) - In a bi-partisan
vote on Monday, Dickinson County Board of Commissioners Chairman Henry
Wender, a Republican representing District four, joined the two
Democratic Commissioners, Kevin Pirlot (Dist 2) and John Degenaer (Dist
5), in rejecting a proposed thank you letter to President Trump, for
bringing us the Covid-19 vaccine.
The letter was suggested during
Commissioner's personal privilege by Commissioner Joe Stevens (R-Dist 1)
who entered a motion calling for the sending of a letter or email to
President Trump, thanking him and all others involved in Operation Warp
Speed, bringing the
Ciovid-19 vaccine online in "only 10 months."
There was very
little discussion prior to the vote.
The only Commissioner
joining Stevens was Barb Kramer (R-Dist 3).
