Outside of a few swipes at cities and states that shut down during the pandemic last year, Gov. Stitt skirted the topic of COVID-19 in remarks to business leaders, instead focusing on economic growth and his social media war with the animal rights group PETA.
The event was originally billed as a “community impact forum” about the McGirt Supreme Court decision. But almost everyone who attended was there in protest. The fallout has set Stitt and the tribes further apart.
