It is past time that government leadership treat the people of Michigan and of Perry like the responsible, thoughtful adults they are. I write today to state clearly my opposition to some of Governor Whitmer's executive orders. While I understand and share her desire to protect the public, I question some of the restrictions that she has imposed as oversteppling her executive authority. She has created a vague, overreaching framework of emergency laws that only confuse Michigan's responsible, thoughtful adults.
Therefore, we will continue not having strict enforcement of these orders and effective immediately the City of Perry will not assist other law enforcement agencies int he strict enforcement of these orders. We will deal with every case as an individual situation and apply common sense in assessing the apparent violation.
I took an oath to uphold and defend the Michigan Constitution, as well as the US Constituion and to ensure the God given rights of the people of Perry are not violated. I believe the City of Perry as a municipal government is on the front line to defend your civil liberties.
Our focus needs to be on reopening our city and getting people back to work. We also need to be aware that this virus cna be deadly and that we need to continue to practice social distancing, washing of hands, wearing of masks as well as other medically recommended measures. Allowing those without paychecks back to work is imperative to the economic success and wellbeing of our community. We can do this thoughtfully and in stages, especially where businesses adopt appropriate social hygiene practices.
Together, as a community, we will overcome this pandemic, and as American, we will preserver and come out even stronger than before. Standing together, six feet apart, we are #PerryStrong. As Mayor for this community I want you to know I have your back and will continue to serve the people who have entrusted me with your protection.
