Two Guilford County commissioners are getting some harsh criticism due to a picture posted on the county’s Facebook page.
Four commissioners recently attended the National Association of County Commissioners (NACo) Annual Conference in Washington, DC. On Wednesday, Feb. 17, county staff posted a picture of some of the attendees on the county’s Facebook page, which showed the group bunched together indoors with no one wearing a mask.
The Guilford County Board of Commissioners recently passed a mandate that states that all county residents must wear a mask while indoors in public places.
Two Guilford County commissioners depicted in the picture (seen above) were Kay Cashion and Carlvena Foster.
A description of the picture stated that the commissioners “recently” attended the conference in Washington. Foster and Cashion have both voted for past mandates as well as the one currently in effect.
As soon as the picture went up the biting comments began to come in.
Michele M.. Fox, for instance, posted “Lovely. This looks like a good sign that mask mandates will be dropped soon in Guilford County!! It’s time to show our smiling faces and let our children do the same in the schools!”
Facebook user Nichole Lawson merely wrote “Nice masks,” while Elizabeth Foster chimed in: “Must be nice to be maskless. Funny – if you really thought they were necessary as you are mandating for your constituents, you’d be wearing them in DC whether or not they were required. Hypocrites. Vote. Them. Out.”
C.J. Smith wrote “More evidence of the hypocrisy. This rules for thee but not for me “leadership” is getting pretty old in Guilford County.”
The Guilford County Board of Commissioners is meeting on Thursday, Feb. 17 to determine if Guilford County should continue its current mask mandate.
They live by the “Rules for Then, not me!” philosophy!!!
LOL Masks for thee but not for me. The masks will continue until morale improves!

Think back to January 6th 2021. Take notice tryants
Not surprised with this liberal “holier than thou” attitude. They got King Skippy leading the way.
Bunch of thieves and crooks running this commission for sure.
Our problem is that serfs, working poor, peasants, peons, slaves, vassals, servants never knew what it was like to be free, vote, have an influence in government, be “we the people”. They were enlightened of that inalienable right by a brilliant document a couple of hundred years ago. Now that those aristocratic upper-crust blue blood patrician elitists are snobbishly treating us like the serfs we are again we just aren’t happy about them deciding those rights arent so unassailable.
and the surprise is———–??
Parents used to instruct their children to “do as I say, not as I do”. The commissioners obviously view us minions as their “children” and themselves as the “wise parents.” If they do not disband the mask mandate at the next meeting, they need to be recalled.
More of do as I say not as I do. What do you think about it chris
Hey it’s good to know the commissioners stroll around barefaced like me.
By the way did they take down the mask violation snitch line ? Was it to many complaints against Alston reality or did someone overload it with SPAM
And this is a big surprise to anyone??!! I’m done…..no more masks for me!!!!
I would think the nutters would cheer their maskless stance? Are you nutters blaming Skip as a dictator with complete control or blaming the entire Dem party? Come on nutters. Get your talking points in order.
It’s hypocrisy. It’s not a talking point. What is your opinion of those who impose mandates and when they leave town they do not follow their own mandate?
What’s a nutter?
Hypocrisy ain’t pretty. Honesty is in short supply. An pols have neither.
Speak with our votes… I was voting them out before this crazy stuff, now I will work harder to get the message out to others. Look if 6 blue states can drop the masks mandates with one of them CA, then maybe these idiots will try to save their jobs and drop it here too, along with the overdue masks in our schools.
I saw Kay Cashion last year at a small shop on Lawndale without a mask. She was trying on jackets in this trendy little shop while the rest of us were masked up. She is a hypocrite and has been in power way too long.
Now you know the sign of royalty. She wouldn’t know what to do in life if she wasn’t on the board. Going on county paid trips, wining and dining in big cities, and all the trappings of success. Those who voted for her should be ashamed.
More hypocrisy and no remorse for trampling the serfs. I’m sure they are safe since they are young, athletic, and not overweight, out of shape old ladies.
Oh, the Washington DC KOOLAID!
Remember this, and publicize it in the next commissioner election. Am sure there will be posters and banners with this photo as a guide to how you should vote. Wining and dining on the public’s dime. Vote them out!!!!!!!
Hypo-crat-o-rama. Skip-the-hyp set the standard.
All hail BBB!
They are just trying to be a part of what the “big boys” do. Showing their true colors. Again they think we are stupid.
