Oregon mayor tells residents to ignore coronavirus restrictions


A #Republican mayor in #Oregon is encouraging business owners to defy the state’s coronavirus restrictions.

#Stan #Pulliam, the mayor of #Sandy, #Ore., blasted #Democratic #Gov. #Kate #Brown’s orders after a state of emergency was declared until #March 3, 2021. The previous executive order was set to expire on #Jan. 2, 2021.

“I think all #Oregonians should take pause, stand up and say ‘this must stop,’” #Pulliam told “#America’s #Newsroom” on #Wednesday.

A salon owner also accused the #Oregon governor of “retaliating” and “terrorizing” her family as she faces a $100,000 lawsuit for defying the state’s lockdown orders. #Lindsey #Graham of #Glamour #Salon argued #Brown is acting like “a dictator.”

#Both the #Oregon mayor and salon owner said they continued to receive death threats for resisting the coronavirus restrictions. #Pulliam called on businesses to ignore the statewide coronavirus orders and remain open.

SALON OWNER ACCUSES OREGON GOVERNOR OF RETALIATING FOR RESISTING LOCKDOWN ORDERS: ‘SHE TERRORIZED MY FAMILY’

“#What we’re talking about doing is having the mass movement opening across the state of #Oregon throughout all of our local communities on #January 1st, #New #Year’s #Day,” #Pulliam said.

#Pulliam went on to say small businesses should open just “one level under” #Gov. #Brown’s guidelines, which includes wearing proper face masks while social distancing and sanitizing.

“#We want to get the storefronts open and get employees back to work,” he said.

#Pulliam demanded #Brown present the “scientific evidence” to prove how small businesses are contributing to the coronavirus spread and argued the community can safely open again.

“#We talk about spread coming from our local main street and locally owned businesses, but [pay] very little attention to the big-box stores that are packing and supporting corporate #America,” #Pulliam said. “#It’s time we stand with [our local communities].”

#Pulliam mentioned he reached out to the governor to release the coronavirus data, nearly a week ago, and has yet to hear back.

#Gov. #Brown “has to make the case to these local small business owners as to why she shut them down but we can pack into corporate #America,” he said.
