Letter to the editor: Workforce march shows restrictions are not popular

CJ Milmoe


The Back to Work march in Breckenridge showed how popular Summit County’s draconian COVID-19 restrictions are. They are popular with everyone except:

  • Working people who are unemployed because of restrictions
  • Young people
  • Parents, particularly low-income parents whose children need to be in school
  • Owners of shops bars and restaurants who are not allowed to serve customers
  • Owners who need to rent their properties in order to pay taxes and the other costs of owning property in Summit County
  • Religious people who would like to go to church
  • Skiers who would like to ski and sledders who would like to sled at Carter Park
  • Families not in the same household who would like to celebrate together in Summit County without being threatened with arrest
  • People who value personal freedom

The Summit County commissioners can count on support for their restrictions from a coalition of people who:

  • Do not want to work
  • Are wealthy and do not need to work
  • Don’t own a business or property
  • Are childless
  • Are not religious
  • Do not care for winter sports
  • Prefer being alone to being with family
  • People who need a big brother or nanny to tell them what to do
