Letter: Franson's Facebook comment was misleading

Representatives who vote on laws that affect us should be well read.

We are part of The Trust Project.

To the editor:

In regard to Jon Koll's letter to the editor in the Dec. 4th Echo Press, "Irresponsible religious conservatives," Rep. Mary Danielle Franson commented on your Facebook page. I quote: "The Governor is also doing meetings...while not wearing (mask)."

Then Mary provided a link to GrandRapidsMN.com, a Dec. 2, 2020 article "Mesabi Metallics working in new Lease" with a photo.

The photo does show Gov. Walz without a mask, however, there is an editor's note below the photo stating that it is from December 19 (2019) before COVID-19 and before the mask mandate was in place.

Representatives who vote on laws that affect us should be well read. They should be someone who does their homework, not someone who is careless or purposely deceives constituents. That is totally irresponsible.
