TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Leon County GOP Chair, Evan Power announced his intention to file a lawsuit against the commission for passing a mask mandate moments after it passed.

After conferring with attorney @AnthonySabatini I intend to bring suit against the Leon County Commission passing an ordinance that makes failing to wear a mask a misdemeanor. I look forward to the judicial process in this matter. Cc: @KarlEtters @MonicaCaseyNews— Evan Power (@EvanPower) June 23, 2020
