08:10 Citizen comment period begins with mask supporter.
11:01 Jennifer Fischer (my wife) comments with a focus on assumed risk.
15:06 My testimony.
QUITE POSSIBLY THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE COMMENT PERIOD:
25:19 Student accuses school district of racism and an older gentleman responds at…
28:12 And takes the student to school.
51:46 Franklin resident says all board members need to be voted out.
52:45 Grandmother blasts board.
56:12 Power point presentation prepared by Evgenia Vasylenko begins with Franklin students Matthew Vasylenko and Kyla Fischer reading off the updated list of schools and school districts that have gone maskless. The Power Point continues with lots of clinical scientific information.
1:35:29 Evgenia respectfully requests the board make a motion to consider making masks optional. You’ll hear frustrated audience members upset that not one single board member will take such action.
1:47:55 Another request for a motion from another parent. More testimony in opposition to masks follows.
Those in support of going mask optional made tremendous arguments. They were unceremoniously ignored. Those in charge of Franklin schools do not care about our children. They can’t be trusted. They all need to go.
