Kingman City Council votes to remove mask mandate – Keener, Nelson, Lingenfelter, Watkins all voted to remove the mask mandate even though COVID infections and deaths are rising nationwide including in Arizona? So they’re all reading right-wing conspiracy theories and false news instead of listening to the facts? Unreal!

Kingman City Council votes to remove mask mandate – Seventy-eight written comments in favor of the mask mandate, only four in opposition, yet Kingman Council ignores the people!

Kingman City Council votes to remove mask mandate – In a spineless vote, the City Council will remove the very factor that helped keep the virus at bay! Thank you, Mayor Miles, Councilwoman Stehly, and Councilman Wayt, for making the public health and welfare, and our lives, a priority.

Kingman City Council votes to remove mask mandate – It was ludicrous that Councilman Watkins followed this vote by presenting a major spending effort on downtown improvement for consideration. Who will shop there, and spend, with another wave of COVID-19 beginning, and fewer protections to those at high risk?

Mohave County records 32 new cases of COVID-19 – We are beginning another spike, yet Kingman City Council members decided to remove the most basic protection from community spread we had – the mask mandate! This exhibits a lack of respect for public safety! But the mob is happy.

Kingman City Council votes to remove mask mandate – Being the city council has voted to remove the mask mandate, then I think it’s only proper if the numbers begin to surge due to that removal. Then every one of those city council people should resign!

Mohave County problem properties – It’s about time! I live in the Butler area and it’s horrible how some of these properties have become landfills and drug dens. Good people take pride and maintain their property beautifully while next door looks like a junk yard.
