Colorado tourist town just shut down to locals only to protect the citizens. When is LC GOING TO STEP UP?!
#Lincolncity Oregon, this town is a complete laughing stock. While the civilized cities are preparing Corona Virus Testing and Quarantine sites, here in a MAJOR tourist destination between Washington and California. Here? Everything is a complete joke. People here live in fanciful bubble land and while PEOPLE CLAIM CORONAVIRUS SYMPTOMS they KNOWINGLY travel risking infection to others instead of the suggested 14 day quarantine for those that are sick. Meanwhile they track only those who have came into contact with China or known Contactee traces. The level of IGNORANCE in this town is LETHAL and something should be done!!!!!!! Democracy dies in Darkness!!!!

She will be joined by Milwaukie Mayor Gamba. Together they will provide insight into what a city’s climate action plan does, who can be involved in its development, when a community needs to establish one, where it will for call for changes, and why it has become so critical.
