    There have been a few times I’ve seen the govenor, lieutenant govenor or their staff at private events and they are not wearing the same PPE as the employees.

    What we always said in the safety business is if management doesn’t wear it then management/leadership at these facilities was poor.

    Says something about the govenor and his staff I suppose.

  37. - Christopher - Wednesday, Feb 28, 18 @ 4:49 pm:

    “Oh, if only I was old enough to vote for Ives.”


  38. - Christopher - Wednesday, Feb 28, 18 @ 4:49 pm:
