TNDP CHAIR MARY MANCINI RELEASED THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO GOVERNOR LEE ENDING BUSINESS RESTRICTIONS DURING COVID.
SEPTEMBER 29TH, 2020 (Nashville, TN) – “Governor Lee has refused to take the pandemic seriously from the beginning. If he had done his research, listened to scientists, and showed some leadership in March, we would be headed into the threat of a second wave with confidence that we would weather the coming storm. Instead, he’s once again making decisions based on what he wants instead of heeding the advice of public health experts and doing what’s in the best interests of Tennesseans. More than 2,400 Tennesseans have been killed during this pandemic and there are still over 20 deaths per day. Governor Lee’s decision today will only increase the death toll. – Chair Mary Mancini
The Tennessee Democratic Party works to elect Democratic candidates who believe that all Tennesseans deserve a better future no matter who you are, what you look like, where you live, who you love, or how you pray.
