Memorial Day Message from Rep. Driscoll

As always, please feel free to contact my office if we can be of any assistance. Enjoy a safe Memorial Day weekend. Be well,

The plans officially mark the executive branch’s transition from a COVID-19 response-only mindset to a more recovery-focused approach. While the pivot point on the calendar might be clear, the clarity of the reopening plans could be better. Many people are confused about the way forward.
