Listen now (69 mins) | Many of you know that I have been active in founding the COVID Response Network (CRN) on the Northern California Coast. We must be prepared to stop this and all future pandemics, and I believe that an effective response begins at the local level. Here in Mendocino County, where I broadcast weekly, we are lucky to have a dedicated Board of Supervisors which responds to the needs of our residents. I recently sat down and spoke with Ted Williams – Supervisor for the 5th District of Mendocino County – about several issues of pressing national concern. Chief among these issues is the on-going COVID pandemic, the rollout of the vaccine, and how much longer we will need to continue measures such as social distancing and mask-wearing.
