Jim Oberweis, a Republican who is running against IL014 Congresswoman Lauren Underwood, has a poll on his campaign Facebook page regarding the extension of Illinois’ stay at home order. (Which currently applies to all residents but one.)
Do you agree with Governor Pritzker’s extension of the “Stay-At-Home” order through the end of May? Add your voice – use the comments section to say why you either agree or disagree.
I don’t live in the 14th District, but I’d rather have someone with public health expertise in congress than someone who referred to himself in a fundraising letter as “token white male.” With Illinois’ peak not expected until mid-May, I don’t think it is wise to end restrictions before then. Otherwise, Illinois will have the worst of both worlds: Economic distress and increasing cases. So maybe we can help Jim see the error of apparently relying on a Facebook poll to inform public health decisions?
