Rep. Grossell applauds counties asking Walz to lift stay-at-home order

Wednesday, April 22, 2020

CLEARBROOK – State Rep. Matt Grossell, R-Clearbrook, issued the following statement after the Clearwater, Hubbard and Becker county boards on Tuesday each approved resolutions asking Gov. Tim Walz to rescind his stay-at-home order. Beltrami County voted down a similar resolution.

“Main Street businesses are suffering enormous losses and this shutdown needs to end now so people can earn a living,” Grossell said. “Many people in our area, especially seasonal workers, rely on income they earn in the next handful of months to hold them over during slow times and we can’t take that away from them. We can get our economy going again and still protect the health and safety of our citizens. A growing number of county boards understand this and are asking the governor to back off. It is great to see counties in our region taking matters into their own hands by approving these resolutions.”
