Anti-mask activist set for appointment to state Health and Human Services board

1 min read

According to the packet for today’s Livingston County Board of Commissioners meeting (click here for the packet, and head to page 35), Lee Ann Blazejewski is the one-and-only applicant for a vacancy on Livingston County’s board of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

Blazejewski has gained some notoriety for her attendance at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, and as being a perennial call-to-the-public attendee of the county board meetings as a staunch anti-masker.

Blazejewski, a candidate for one of three seats on the Howell City Council, was one of several city candidates who did not respond to an invitation to appear at the League of Women Voters Candidate Forum.

You can watch the city forum here:

She ran unsuccessfully in the 2020 Republican primary against Jay Drick for a seat on the Livingston County Board of Commissioners.

While her credentials as a registered nurse would seem to make her a qualified choice to serve as Livingston County’s liaison to the MDHHS board, it’s her opposition to the MDHSS response to COVID-19 that is causing some head-scratching. Blazejewski has touted the use of zinc, quercetin, bromclain and Vitamin C as “the prevention” to COVID-19, which has claimed over 688,000 lives in the U.S. thus far.
