Reynolds isn't listening to science on virus

In my opinion, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds has switched from making statewide coronavirus-related decisions based on scientific fact to decisions based on political opinion.

I predominantly vote Republican, but until Reynolds initiates a statewide mask mandate and allows individual Iowa counties or municipalities to enforce local initiatives (like return to school decisions), I will not vote for Reynolds when her term is up in two years. Period.

Reynolds has botched Iowa’s coronavirus recovery despite medical and public health professional advice. Now is the time to make your voice heard to vote her out in 2022 if she does not change her policies.

Regardless of politics, Reynolds needs to pony up and do what is right for Iowa, otherwise she deserves to be booted from office.
