This week, Governor JB Pritzker issued a statewide mask mandate for K-12 students. In doing so, he superseded the decisions being made at the local level, and silenced the voices of students, parents, educators and administrators. As your State Representative, I want to hear from you. Your voice and your input on state issues matters—especially when it comes to the health and wellbeing of our children.
After living through a global pandemic for the last 18 months, we are still very much all in this together. Our goal remains the same: stop the spread of COVID-19. In order to do that efficiently and effectively, all parties should be at the table, not stuck under unilateral authority. Please sign the petition here to share your views and let Governor Pritzker know that you want your voice heard.
While petitions speak volumes, please know that I am also available to meet with you in person—or virtually—to discuss this issue further. Feel free to contact me at my office – Dan Brady
