County priorities

"Shouldn’t government’s first priority be to care for its citizens?" With all respect to Mr/Ms Petrovits, that mindset is toxic. The government has a responsibility to guarantee basic freedoms. Its involvement in our lives should be practically unnoticeable.

Commissioner clarifies position
