Emotions ran very high in downtown Memphis yesterday. Shelby County Commissioner Mick Wright joined Tim Van Horn on Wake Up Memphis today to talk about Tuesday’s highly-charged County Commission meeting.
The biggest point of contention on the agenda was the Commission’s attempt to pass a mask resolution. The current mandate applies primarily to schools and daycares. The resolution would have urged the Shelby County Health Department to enact a much broader mask mandate. Mick Wright talks about why a vote did not take place.
Additionally, Commissioner Wright also addressed some of the outrageous behavior by fellow Commissioner Tami Sawyer, some of which spilled over to social media.
