IL Senate District 43 Candidate and retired Marine Corps Major Ben Bierly and Executive Chairman of Freedom Movement USA Brandon Harris are holding a protest on Saturday April, 25th, 2020 in Joliet / Crest Hill Illinois.
Republican Bierly stated "I have advocated for compliance with the shutdown for a month but our state government must take steps to reopen our state beginning May 1st". Bierly 49 also brought light to the state's current financial position. "The governor is demanding to increase our taxes when he should be reducing government spending instead. If the governor wants more revenue, let him work to get us safely and swiftly back to work and life."
Harris 30 of Joliet, IL stated "Ben gave us a call and asked us to cohost a rally for the people and about the people". Harris started the federal super-PAC Freedom Movement USA with former Will County Board Member Debbie Millitello and current Will County Board Member Stephen Balich of Orland Park. Harris also stated: "It is men like Ben Bierly whom make the difference we're looking for. As a PAC we stand for citizens' constitutional rights and leftist elites are using the pandemic to steal our rights away without so much as a vote." Harris also stated: "We will lose many great Americans to COVID-19, but we are also losing much more health and wealth with the extrended shutdown."
