No Trespassing and Sheriff Wheeler
I agree with Sheriff Wheeler.
A vote for me is a vote for freedom!
"Last night at the monthly Bonner County Republican Central Committee meeting, Sheriff Wheeler devoted his comment period to inform us to his continued stance against the COVID-19 shutdown.
On March 2, in a letter to Governor Little, he requested he call up the full Legislature for an Emergency Meeting so it can debate reopening Idaho. As we know, the Governor did not do that and has indeed extended the shutdown.
Sheriff Wheeler stands by his request and stated that he holds the Governor directly responsible for the havoc the shutdown has wreaked on Idahoans' lives, despite the fact that there have been zero cases in some Idaho counties, only 4 cases in Bonner County, and 70 cases in Kootenai County, none of them requiring hospitalization, and there have been no deaths in all of North Idaho.
He further announced that he is not enforcing any of the Governor's shutdown order, including testing, contact tracing, social distancing, wearing of masks, opening their businesses, holding peaceful rallies, or quarantining Washingtonians who enter Idaho and which the Governor wants to quarantine for two weeks.
The State received $7 million in federal funds to hire 255 employees to do contact tracing, and he suggested that citizens opposed to participating put up a "No Trespassing" or "No Soliciting" sign on their door or gate, and if anyone ignores that sign, including government employees, to call the Sheriff's Office and they will respond to handle this violation."
