Bucks County House Democrats: ‘We worked with Gov. Wolf to reopen Bucks County’: Bucks County to move to yellow phase by June 5
DOYLESTOWN/NEWTOWN/LEVITTOWN, May 22 – State Reps. Wendy Ullman, Tina Davis, John Galloway, and Perry Warren, all D-Bucks, praised Gov. Tom Wolf’s collaborative working relationship with the PA House Democratic Caucus, which has resulted in Bucks County moving to the yellow phase byJune 5.
“Since Day One, my colleagues and I have worked with Governor Tom Wolf and the PA Department of Health toward a measured, data-driven, SAFE and EFFECTIVE reopening of the economy,” Warren said. “Today, thanks to the efforts and collective sacrifice our community has made, Governor Wolf has announced our county is moving into the yellow phase by June 5.”
“Governor Wolf listened to my reasoning why it was time to reopen Bucks County,” Ullman said. “I pointed out that the data and health reports showed that Bucks County residents’ efforts during the red phase had been successful, and we were now at a point where we could safely move to the yellow phase.”
“I’ve shared with Governor Wolf the stories of my hardest-hit constituents. A business owner myself, I told him how far the bottom line has dropped from under us,” Davis said. “I’m proud of my fellow Bucks County residents for their efforts during this challenging period and am ready to help them get working again.”
Galloway said, “I explained to the governor that the people of Bucks County’s sacrifices under the Stay-At-Home order have paid off, and it’s now time to focus on bringing back Bucks County to good economic health by helping our small businesses get back on their feet.”
The legislators stressed the need for people to continue to follow CDC guidelines.
After all that we’ve been through, we don’t want to go back to red. Aim for the green phase by continuing to stand six feet apart and wearing a mask, the legislators said.
