Good afternoon and welcome to our Weekend Update.
On Tuesday, Pennsylvanians went to the polls to vote in Primary and Special Elections. There were two significant Constitutional Amendments on the ballot. These Amendments ensure the legislature, and by extension ‘We the People,’ will now have a say in current and future disaster proclamations and the mandates that followed.
Pennsylvanians spoke with their ballots, sending a loud and clear message to the Wolf Administration that they do not agree with his handling of the pandemic and agree that there must be appropriate checks and balances in government. The Wolf Administration’s lockdowns and mandates have hurt small businesses, our families and severely impacted our children’s education. Proving that the Governor is tone-deaf, he extended the disaster order just two days after Pennsylvanians voted to give the legislature the ability to check his powers. It is beyond time that Governor Wolf removes the disaster orders and fully reopens Pennsylvania… our economy, schools, and lives. Fully open up PA!
On Thursday evening, I attended the Republican Committee of Allegheny County, where Florida Governor Ron DeSantis served as the keynote speaker. He has done a great job in Florida, and his speech highlighted that… from his handling of the pandemic to the 2020 election to backing our law enforcement to being a beacon for job creators.
