As a teacher and coach, I know it is crucial to always show up on time or earlier. Here I am yesterday sitting in the Assembly chamber, waiting for debate to begin on ending the statewide mask mandate. Session was scheduled to begin at 9 am but was delayed until 1:30 pm.
Patience is a virtue. I was prepared to give a speech in support of keeping the mask mandate because 98 percent of my constituents who contacted me in recent days support the mask mandate, including small business owners and health care professionals.
