Westchester County is facing unprecedented hardships in the face of COVID-19. In addition to health and safety concerns, we are all struggling through an unexpected major recession. Governments have been acting to address that crisis, with the state and federal governments providing a stimulus and delaying the collection of taxes.

The Democratic Primary campaign of Jeremiah Frei-Pearson announced this morning that it is officially suspending petitioning, effective immediately, over the ongoing public health crisis created by the Coronavirus Global Pandemic. Petitioning requires close, personal contact between strangers and runs directly counter to the recommendations of medical professionals about the need for “social distancing” to help fight the spread of COVID-19.
