County’s mayors take to Breakfast stage to discuss variety of topics, especially those pandemic-related
At a time when cases of the coronavirus are on the rise in some areas, mask mandates are being considered and vaccination rates remain low, the mayors across Williamson County appear to be in unison when it comes to issues of the COVID-19 pandemic.
That was made clear at Tuesday morning’s Breakfast with the Mayors at Rolling Hills Community Church, the first time Franklin Tomorrow’s quarterly community event has been held in person since before the onset of the pandemic in March 2020. Hosted by Williamson County Mayor Rogers Anderson and Franklin Mayor Ken Moore, and moderated by Tom Lawrence from WAKM-AM radio, the gathering also featured mayors Debby Rainey of Fairview, Derek Adams of Nolensville, Rhea Little of Brentwood, Corey Napier of Thompson’s Station and Jim Hagaman of Spring Hill.
When asked if they would support a government campaign to encourage residents to get the vaccine, all basically said it comes down to personal choice and individual responsibility. And while city and community officials should lead in providing information on where and how to receive the immunization, government has no business requiring it.
