Press Release: August 3, 2022

Ottawa County loves freedom!

Ottawa Impact was built by the efforts of moms and dads, grandparents, hard working Americans, and business owners, who simply desired to have individual freedoms, parental rights, and American values protected in our county.

Our current county commissioners refused to listen and act in defense of these issues— core values to our people and to the Republican Party platform. When elected officials refuse to listen to the people and protect constitutional freedoms, they must be replaced.

The people of Ottawa County have worked tirelessly towards this day. The people have spoken, and overwhelmingly voted to replace those who ignored their freedoms, their parental rights, and their values.

In an email from Ottawa County, sent November 3, 2021:

“We respect the rights of parents to choose what medical measures are right for their child,” said Lisa Stefanovsky, Health Officer.

Apparently the rights of parents don’t extend to ALL medical measures… only the ones the Health Officer has determined are currently allowed.

This echos the sentiment of one Ottawa County Commissioner, when he said in August 2021:

“Sometimes the government needs to make your decisions for you. And that’s what we are doing.”

Between October 2020 and September 2021, Ottawa County reported on average fewer than one (1) COVID-19 hospitalization per month in people under 18 years of age.
