U.S. Senate Candidate Jane Timken Opposes Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther’s Impending Mask Mandate

September 8, 2021

CANTON, OH – U.S. Senate candidate Jane Timken released the following statement opposing Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther’s impending executive order on mandatory masking: 


 “Mayor Ginther’s decision to reimpose the mask mandate sends the exact wrong message to Ohioans. The vast majority of Americans have done everything asked of them over the last year and a half for the supposed promise of a return to normalcy, only to be met with endless mandates and new restrictions. What message does it send to Ohioans on the fence about getting vaccinated if they still must wear a mask after doing so? We should heed the information, science and data that we have learned over the last 17 months that show one-size-fits-all mandates do not work. I am strongly opposed to this mandate that is yet another display of Democrat government overreach in the era of the COVID pandemic.”
