To the Editor:
Gentlemen, I understand that you voted to allow bars to open with restrictions which apparently surpasses the Governor’s executive order (If I understand it correctly).
I also heard on state wide news accounts your actions today will also strip local power from those such as myself, who are dealing with this emergency under local ordinances of the Town of Franklin.
What happens if I need to issue an order to protect the public? Who do I go to? Why, when I understood that you both are local government people, did you vote on this? (Assuming you did)
I would greatly appreciate an explanation why the NCGA felt it necessary to usurp local authority in a fast moving emergency situation.
Mayor, Town of Franklin
