Letter to editor stock art - row of mailboxes

I am writing a response to the Prior Lake American news article “Scott County commissioner remains 'vaccine-hesitant' after COVID hospitalization” dated Nov. 23 online.

I am not writing to criticize, debase or vilify Commissioner Dave Beer. I am glad he recovered from COVID-19 and wish him the best. I personally believe the decision to get vaccinated is best left up to the individual even for an elected official like Beer.
