Letter: Striking COVID response differences

Could there be a more striking contrast between the courageous leadership shown by the current occupant of the White House and those in the Juneau governor’s mansion and Anchorage City Hall?

President Joe Biden is using every means at his disposal to combat COVID-19 and its variants, one of the worst economic and public health crises facing the world in a century. Meanwhile, Gov. Mike Dunleavy and Mayor Dave Bronson have opted for the time-honored approach of a different American statesman, Alfred E. Neuman: “What, me worry?”

Thank you, President Biden.
