I can’t understand where Jon Russell is coming from.
I think it’s noble for Russell to vote with the rest of the Culpeper Town Council to give all the state money to help small business owners, but to state, “This was caused by state government” is ludicrous (June 16, 2020, article, "Town’s entire $1.6 million federal CARES allocation will go to Culpeper small businesses").
Apparently, he has been oblivious to the pandemic raging across the country, killing 110,000 people.
Regardless of political viewpoints, our governor, like the majority of governors, has been doing his best to protect the citizens of his state.
I am sure that most Culpeper residents, as well as business owners, were willing to stay at home to protect their own lives as well as the lives of others in their community.
It seems to me Russell missed his opportunity to offer constructive guidance at a time when it would have been most helpful.
Perhaps I’m missing something.
