My Democratic mayor (Athens-Clarke Co., GA) was on CNN to oppose Kemp's reopening of GA

Mayor Kelly Girtz (D - Athens-Clarke County, GA, home of UGA) and our county commissioners have been awesome in their response to COVID19!


<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">"Georgia has been one of the lowest testing states per capita and unfortunately, this had a damaging effect on health care outcomes and... I hate to see this add insult to injury," Athens-Clarke County Mayor Kelly Girtz says about Gov.

Athens-Clarke County Mayor Kelly Girtz is urging local residents to keep sheltering in place and businesses to stay closed despite Gov. Brian Kemp saying that some businesses can begin to reopen later this week.

Girtz appeared on CNN this morning to discuss Kemp partially lifting his statewide shelter-in-place order.

"I'm exhorting everybody in this community to continue sheltering in place. Do not reopen," he said. "It's like telling your quarterback, 'We don't have a helmet for you, we don't have pads, but just get out on the field and try not to get sacked.'"

"If somebody's not alive, they're not going to be able to be a customer," he said.

3. TY, You, too!

Guessing Dem leaders know 5/5 won't be long enough but if they overtly state the truth, the snowflakes will be up in arms. 👍

5. Kemp & Trump want to prevent testing and reopen certain businesses in order to get re-elected.

Their playbook is chaos, lies, thievery and death.
