Neighbors and Friends,
Please join Sen. Marty, Rep. Hollins and me for a virtual Town Hall this Saturday, June 11, at 10:30. We look forward to answering your questions and talking about the recently concluded legislative session.
Apply for your Frontline Worker Bonus
From now until July 22, workers who were on the frontline of the pandemic can apply for a bonus of up to $750. The funds are not first come, first served and the money set aside for this program will be split equally among all approved applicants. Eligible workers have 45 days to apply. Spread the word to your friends and family who had to put themselves in harm’s way during this challenging time. Apply here.
