During the recent SRHD Mr. Al French had issue with Dr. Bob Lutz attending a BLM rally on May 7th of this year. He stated that this caused the public to lose faith in the board as it was against the stay-at-home order.
Yet, Mr. French had no issue with another board member, Jason Kinley, attending an anti-mask rally May 1st, also during the stay-at-home order. I’m assuming that Dr. Lutz wore a mask and was socially distanced, meaning that I still respect his decision to go to a socially distanced walk through downtown.
On the other hand I assume at the anti-mask protest that Mr. Kinley did not wear a mask and also spread misinformation at said protest, causing me lose respect for him and the SRHD. Yet, this action didn’t cause Mr. Kinley’s job to be in question. Am I to assume that it wasn’t so much the violation of the stay at home order but the cause that each protest represented?
I would be extremely appalled that the reasons said comments were brought up were because of underlying racial bias.
