Good job Governor Gordon…although fighting Covid will be an uphill battle this flu season you have the right ideas and approach to control or slow the spread of Covid….

The governor needs to take strong and decisive action and mandate masks statewide as well as closing bars. Anything less is irresponsible.

Meanwhile in Casper, Mr. Gordon decided to attend the Boys and Girls Club breakfast on 10/21/20 that had very little social distancing and had a photo op without facial covering. Please, Mr. Gordon, I ask “Has your patriotism gone awry?”
