Touring the Carlson Center emergency field hospital set up, Michael Bork, Parks and Recreation Director for the Fairbanks North Star Borough in Fairbanks, snapped a selfie and had a salty social media message for Fairbanks residents, telling them to “staythef**athome.”
Bork, when not managing parks and rec in the Golden Heart City, teaches laughter yoga and is an international speaker on the concept of happiness. Thus, we’re presuming his missive was meant to be funny. Some Fairbanks residents thought it might not be a tone-perfect communication from a borough official to the taxpaying public. But this is 2020, and so far, the year has been somewhat of a dumpster fire, so perhaps Bork’s coarse message isn’t the worst utterance we’ve heard from an official.
