Statement from the City of Racine Mayor Cory Mason on Today’s Supreme Court Decision
City of Racine – Today, Mayor Mason released the following statement in relation to the State Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the “safer at home” order:
Today the Wisconsin Supreme Court and their Republican allies in the legislature have put politics before the health and lives of Wisconsin residents. This decision seems rooted more in partisan politics than the findings of law. It certainly ignores science and what thousands of medical professionals have been saying about the necessary steps we all need to take to combat the spread of coronavirus, flatten the curve, and save the lives of our residents. This reckless decision will almost certainly mean that the pandemic lasts longer and the health consequences will be even more severe, particularly in places like Racine which is seeing a spike in cases and savage disparities among communities of color.
“I urge City residents to continue to take the necessary steps to protect yourself, your families, and the community.”
