I am writing in response to Commissioner Ron Kitchen’s comments published in the April 29 edition of the Chronicle. His arrogant display of ignorance and his disregard for the lives of the people he is supposed to serve is appalling. He knows of no science to support the effectiveness of social distancing? Does he live in a cave? He questions the advice given by the best medical minds in the world? Where did he get his medical training, Trump University? He should be ashamed. I hope if he or his family members fall ill, he will continue to scoff, and not endanger the people who are risking all on the front lines by seeking medical treatment.
