Town Snubs Dems With Their Own Kind Of "Sanctuary City"
It has to be tough to be a Republican living in a blue state like California, talk about a minority group... California is still semi in lockdown as they just recently entered into phase two of opening the State. But some resident have had enough and have decided to take a page out of the Dem playbook and have created their own kind of "Sanctuary City." The town of Atwater has decided they will no longer be locked down and the residents have decided to open up regardless of what Governor Newsom wants.
"The [Atwood] City Council heard from a parade of business owners, pastors and residents on Friday who described pandemic-related hardships. Many insisted they could be responsible and keep the Merced County community safe by following safe practices like wearing face masks and keeping social distance.
A tearful Donald Covington, president of the Old Town Atwater Association, said businesses need to get up and running. “People are starving. Two family members have two small businesses, with small children and no income,” he added. “We need to do this today.”
“If they don’t open up, they’re going to be in a really bad state, and we’re going to have bankruptcies and foreclosures and we’re just going to have families that are decimated financially,” said Chamber of Commerce President Don Borgwardt, who is also a local pastor and made a plea for people to be allowed back inside houses of worship."

“It’s time to do the right thing and listen to the people who put us here,” Mayor Paul Creighton said. “We want you guys to survive and thrive. It’s really critical that the electeds in this country and especially this state start listening to you.”
States should be opening up, people need to eat and go back to work in order to put food on the table. Americans should just err on the side of caution for a bit, wear some PPE or check for fevers when going back to work. These State Leaders need to start getting our country back to normal. Small businesses can't stay closed forever and we are getting to the point where some businesses will never open up again, especially if this continues.
