Helping your Child Over Two Wear a Mask

As the candidate for Pa. 199th District of Cumberland County, I have had requests from citizens asking questions about, “how can I get my child to wear a mask and keep it on”?
I have been referring them to this site (Children’s Hospital – Kids Masks) and they had provided positive feed back that their child and or children are much more accepting of wearing a mask. As it states in this link, sometimes things need to become a game, fun time, and ways to make them feel good about themselves like in being a super hero or the like.

Helping kids with special needs and autism understand the importance of wearing a mask and why. How it will protect others and themselves.

Stay Safe Everyone!!!

Janelle Crossley for PA 199th

Happy Independence Day!!

This weekend, we celebrate Independence Day (the Fourth of July).
What is Independence?
Not having to depend on anyone or anything else. It also means being strong and survive alone. Anything can be dependent or independent.  A country gets its independence when it is no longer part of another country.
What is Independence Day?
It is the federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.  The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies were no longer subject (and subordinate) to the rule of Great Britain, King George III, and were now united, free, and independent states.  The Congress voted to declare independence on July 2, however the final Declaration was not signed until July 4th.  Philadelphia held the first commemoration of the event on July 4, 1777.
When did Independence Day become a National Holiday?
July 4th was not declared a federal holiday until 1938!

Special Statement on Demonstrations following the George Floyd Murder

Like you, I have been horrified at the murder by police of George Floyd in Minneapolis.  My team has developed the following statement of my position.

George Floyd (Minneapolis, MN); Breonna Taylor (Louisville, KY); Ahmaud Arbery (Glynn County, GA); Tony McDade (Tallahassee, FL); Dion Johnson (Phoenix, AZ); …and far too many to name in this limited space. 

We say their names. We grieve their loss. We stand with those who call for justice.

Activism is intersectional, and politics must be as well.  I stand with people of color and join my voice with theirs as they demand justice and change. 

Special Statement on Stay-At-Home Orders

“In this “land of the free and home of the brave,” we cannot forget our rights and including the unalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, as stated in the Declaration of Independence 244 years ago. We exercise that right by remembering our moral and legal duty to abide by directives put there for our mutual safety, even when we don’t fully agree with them. We put up with inconveniences and even meet danger face-to-face when we must. Protect each other now, and care for each other, even when it’s inconvenient, for a little longer.”
