Desi's Statement on Opposition to COVID School Closures

Desi Anderson, Candidate for State Senate in the 46th District has released a statement on the opposition to COVID school closures:

“The closing of schools across the state not only harmed the grades of students but their mental and physical health was also impacted. School closures were an example of a long-term power grab by Governor Pritzker that was supported by Democrats down the ballot, including my opponent Senator Dave Koehler. These harmful policies forced students into isolation and caused more stress for each student and their parents. As a mother, I will always be a strong advocate for children in Illinois and will not support any out-of-touch policies that bring this type of mental and physical harm to them. Students should be excited about attending a school where they can go to learn and make friends, but thanks to Governor Pritzker’s and the Democrat supermajority’s tyrannical closures, permanent damage has been done to our children.” - Desi Anderson, Candidate for State Senate in the 46th District
