Supervisor Don Wagner of Orange County’s Third District spoke with Ernby at an anti-mandate demonstration in Irvine on Dec. 4, “I intend to continue, if invited, speaking out against the mandates, and also saying that my choice is to get vaccinated and I believe that should be the choice most people make, absent a genuine health concern or absent a religious objection,”
