Any recommendations for the 2020 primary ballot?

I'll go to the polls.

Thank you to everyone who came out today to tell our elected officials that their reckless decision to reopen without proper safety measures in place is unacceptable. Lancaster deserves a safe and well-planned reopening, not an illegal, rushed, politically-motivated one.

We are limited in our methods of protest, but we won’t put our community at risk by not following proper safety measures. So thank you everyone for safely making your voices heard!

Don’t be fooled by the assertion that this reopening is the “will of the people.” Polls show that Pennsylvanians overwhelming support the Governors plan. The decision to illegally veer from it is unpopular, and we will continue to fight against it until medical experts say it is safe.

Opening now is not “the will of the people.” It is anarchy by some regrettably hard nosed and inadequate Republican idiots-which is what much of that party has become, unfortunately.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t phase yellow mainly about allowing more businesses to reopen? It doesn’t change recommended social distancing and mask-wearing.

Thank you ALL!!!! We need to stick together so that we all stay safe!!!

Thank you to everyone who showed up/spoke up. 👏👏👏

Thanks and much love from Reading!

Thank you for organizing and for everyone who participated! The community needed to know that they are not alone in disapproving of this decision and that we are not powerless. It gives me hope for Lancaster.

Thank you for being a voice of reason!!! We all need to heed the Governors rules and stay safe!!!

Thank you for organizing for us. It felt so good to see everyone and to know that nothing will silence us.

You can report any restaurant and some other businesses to the dept of agriculture if they are not abiding by Wolfs guidelines. Even outside seating is prohibited in red or yellow phase re- opening. Good job today!

Thank you, it was wonderful to take action with some of the best people I know.

Can you make those polls available to share?

Thank you for what you do. Keep these GOP thugs on notice!!!!!

We are so fortunate to have Governor Wolf. He has to make some unpopular decisions but he is focused on keeping us safe. Thank you Governor. You have my vote

I saw/heard a bunch of people driving down town honking away. I wondered what that was. I thought maybe a graduation celebration of some sort since it was on Chestnut and Orange.

Honking to tell Sen. Martin and Rep. Smucker: Our safety comes first! ... See MoreSee Less

You still need to reopen the economy regardless of your political views. Not opening will be devastating to everyone. We all shouldn’t be sitting here making this a political issue. This simply comes down to collapse the state/national economy or reopen and salvage what’s left.

Smucker needs to go.

Seems overwhelming 🙄🤣 Guess all those made up poll takers were still sleeping??

Beep, Beep! Toot,Toot! Yea! Honk, honk, honk!

We were just on WGAL News 8!!!

Thank you!

I love you all!!!!

Let them know!!!

Darn. I forgot.

My grandmas life matters. My friends with pre-existing conditions lives matter. My healthy friends lives matter. We deserve a healthy community and a safe reopening.

Honk honk honk!!!

Lancaster Stands Up

Sheriff Chris Leppler has decided that he will not uphold the order from Governor Wolf that was upheld by the PA and US Supreme Courts.

Every law, by definition, restricts individual freedoms. We would like to remind the Sheriff that he was elected to uphold the law, not interpret it.

Those who have been tasked with interpreting the law have not found it to be unconstitutional and have chosen to uphold it. Sheriff Leppler has no right to pick and choose what laws to uphold. Especially without any justification for his decision.

The arguments he uses here can be applied to almost every law on the books. This is nothing but a political move that encourages lawlessness in our communities and threatens public safety.

Join us tomorrow to let these politicians know that they cannot play politics with our lives. See comments for link to the event.

So stupid

PUBLIC SAFETY IS A RIGHT! That’s why we have laws, police departments, constables, sheriffs, health departments, sanitation, water and sewage departments, and many other tax-payer subsidized organizations dedicated to that end. Does the Sheriff get to change that? I believe that is an issue first, for the courts; second for the legislators; third for the voters. We’ve all figured out that the naked emperor doesn’t get it-but the Sheriff’s Office?

Lancaster Stands Up lied throughout the post above. Courts did not uphold Wolf's actions.The sheriff did give a reason for his actions. Read his statement. He is protecting our Constitution, as he has sworn to do. Stop lying!

But rights of constitutional freedom stop when they unduly infringe on the constitutional rights of others. You cannot shout "fire!" in a crowded theater, or defame someone in the guise of free speech. We recognize that distinction in Pennsylvania. You are free to ride your Harley without a helmet because you aren't risking anyone else's health. That is NOT true of walking around without a mask. If you can't see the difference, perhaps you need another occupation.

You know-give a guy a badge, a gun, and a title-not everyone is up to the huge responsibility of the job. The law defines the job; not the person who holds it.

Sheriff Leppler, in solidarity, I defend my right to park on the street in front of my home. I'm not going to pay the parking tickets, issued by a private company, that infringed on my liberty to do so -- and that your office is now trying to enforce.

Sheriff Leppler does not seem to understand that individual freedoms and liberties do not come at the expense of other individuals. Our freedom to go to work does not extend to our going to work if doing so would harm others. This is a pandemic and the government has the responsibility to keep each person as safe as possible. It has the right to make laws to do so and the sheriff should enforce those laws just like he promised in hos oath of office.

So...you’re opening the door to anarchy just because you want to play politics? Well done , jackass

To show the sincerity of his beliefs, the Sheriff and his children should spend their nights at a local nursing home. He is just a person with not enough testosterone to stand up to Trump. Somehow I do not think that Sheriff would agree with citizens deciding which laws are optional and which are only written on paper, not meant to be followed.

Thought about writing a LTE about letting my yard go since it suits me and to hell with what my neighbors think. Zoning ordinances be damned. Maybe stop with the car registration, license renewals and insurance too. Suits me.

He should be fired!

Sheriff Leppler,.....at this place in this time, I am unhappy with being a resident of Lancaster County. Never thought I would have those feelings. You are a disgrace to Lancaster County. Your job is to uphold the law, not to interpret it or enforce it as you deem fit.

Sheriff you ought to resign, I am ashamed to have to pay your salary.

Chris Lappler- I hope you’re also advising those who go out, & get this virus NOT to seek medical help. Why should the medical professionals put themselves at further risk?

Absolutely sickening. It is his JOB to uphold the law, not to play partisan!

They wouldn’t know the constitution if it hit them over the head. It’s the easy response to I don’t like this.

He should be fired immediately.

Stupid. Poll the people. Despite loudmouths, most people would rather follow CDC guidelines. I hope you are arrested, Sheriff.

Then he should be held in contempt.

Then he should be removed for refusing to do his job!

A Democracy works because of the social contract that exists between a government and those they govern. The people give up some of their rights and in exchange the government provides protections. This contract is especially important during times of crisis. When some people decide to ignore this social contract a democracy falls apart. Law and order fall apart.

I don’t have to work tomorrow....I will be there !

By that reasoning if I am employed as a hit man I have the right to do my work?

Make a little noise ✌🏽☺️🚗🚘🗽🎊
