Ms Barrett says these folks opinions are based on lies BUT she did not even try to clarify what bill she did not sponsor etc. It would behoove her to meet with the constituents of the district and LISTEN and educate them to her Truth. Columbia County residents are hurting and she seems to be riding on her magic carpet above them unable to empathize from her protected solid housing and her ability to keep up with inflation and the rising costs of everything necessary to survive. Her privilege is BLINDING
