“The answer is not fear, it’s preparation.”
County Insights from Moke Simon, Chair of the Board of Supervisors
LAKE COUNTY, CA (May 22, 2020) – Creating Public Policy, particularly in times of unusual challenge, can resemble the refining processes of an iron worker. Heat and pressure, appropriately placed, take raw materials and give them form. Not every effort is a forward step, but flexibility and care are rewarded.
The Monday (May 18) and Tuesday (May 19) meetings of the Lake County Board of Supervisors featured meaningful debate, and public tensions that reflected the uncertainty and consequence of the moment. Out of struggle came signs of progress toward thoughtful reopening of local businesses. In wrestling with real differences, a sense of direction emerged.
Board Chair Moke Simon offered some insights on a week of hard-won progress.
