To the Editor:
Your recent report about Waynesville’s Emergency Ordinance (“Waynesville passes State of Emergency ordinance”) includes a description of Janet Presson’s appalling local activism against the use of face masks in the midst of this pandemic and also against the use of vaccines. Meanwhile, she continues to serve on the Board of the Haywood Healthcare Foundation, which oversees around $13 million in taxpayer money and has a direct impact on the health and well-being of the county’s 62,000 residents.
Ms. Presson is an extremist, and her discredited views can have a detrimental effect on the health and lives of our residents.
While she is entitled to her own opinions, she has no business helping to guide the use of public healthcare funds. Janet Presson needs to be removed from her position on the Haywood Healthcare Foundation at once.
