County Update: Commissioner Becky Fast on ‘getting through unprecedented times’

"Right now – you are not alone - if you have frantic feelings and anxiety it is normal," said Commissioner Becky Fast. "It would be unnatural if you didn’t have a flood of emotions. The social and emotional impact as well as the economic consequences can feel overwhelming."

Each week we provide a member of the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners the opportunity to share an update on what issues are catching their attention. (Every member of the board is offered the same opportunity). This week, we have a column from District 1 Commissioner Becky Fast, whose district covers northeast Johnson County.

During these uncertain times, it’s very important to keep connections alive with your local, state, and federal elected officials to inform them what you are feeling, observing, and thinking. As community spread of COVID-19 continues throughout our region, Johnson County is taking aggressive action to flatten the curve and protect the health and livelihood of our residents.
