Greetings, you do not know me, but you represent me. Whether or not I personally voted for you, you are my voice, my representation in government. Some of our interests align, others do not. That is just how politics are. That said you are doing a difficult job right not under circumstances you didn't know you signed up for. I acknowledge that you are doing your best to represent me and many others in trying circumstances. I, and many others like me, NEED YOU. Your job is more important now than ever. Change is happening whether we like it or not and you are in a position to help shape the new reality. That said, if you die, we lose our voices. If you die, we lose the face we show to the rest of the country. If you die we will lose much of what you have worked for, and much of what you are working on. There is no guarantee your successor will be able to fill your shoes. The public needs you to do your best to survive. We need you, I need you to set an example for us, for others.
Please, please, I am urging you, please wear a mask while you are working. I know the masks aren't comfortable. I know they make things harder for lip readers. That you must speak louder to be heard by your microphones. That said the mask protects you, it also protects everyone else around you. Your Family, Friends, Staff, Co-workers, and your Public all deserve this protection. Your actions in this crisis have more impact than any others in your political career before now. Whether or not I agree with them, I strongly believe that you deserve the chance to survive this so you can participate in the next election. Please wear a mask, keep it on while conducting official business.
Set the example for your people. Live to see this through. Thank you.
