Sen. Whitney Westerfield responded this afternoon to the post in On Second Thought concerning his tweet.
From Senator Westerfield: “This story is not correct. My bill draft has nothing to do with the threshold. A phone call or email to me would’ve sufficed.”
He states he is not directing his legislation at the threshold of county population.
We will be reaching out to Senator Westerfield for a meeting with him in the next few weeks. Once the meeting takes place, hopefully within the next few weeks, we will share his ideas for the legislation.
