10 Year-Old to Morrow Co. Commissioner: “You’re Not Even Paying Attention”

On June 8, a group of us met with Morrow County Commissioner Tom Whiston to talk about problems at the jail that led it to become 100% COVID-infected. It was a heated exchange, in which the Commissioner disputed all of our facts documented in a report using publicly-available evidence.

My daughter Lucia, ten years old, spoke up twice in the meeting to challenge the Commissioner on his version of “the truth.” She says that “people are dying” and that he’s “not even paying attention.” She is right. Watch one of the exchanges here.
