To the editor:

I have heard fairly often in this 206 school board campaign that Maureen Eigen is anti-mask and anti-vaccination. I am Maureen’s father, and I have never heard her say such things. So after the latest round of what I believed to be inaccurate comments in the letters to the editor of this newspaper, I called my daughter and asked her straight up.

She said: “I am a strong supporter of health freedom. I believe your personal medical decisions should be between you and your personal doctor. Whether or not you receive a vaccination or wear a mask is your personal choice. All people should have the right to self-govern their bodies, and individuals should be fully respected and supported regarding their decisions.”

So I respectfully ask community members to please confirm the accuracy of your statements prior to making them. This will help us all accurately understand where our candidates stand on the issues.
