Kari K. Steele turns in four times the number signatures required

There are few things that have remained a constant since the inception of Covid-19 in the United States in 2020. With school closings, remote learning, remote work, job layoffs, business closings, virtual meetings and social isolation that all created communities of concern, a culture of anxiety for the masses and an uncertain future.

Voters have shown in their thousands of signatures on numerous candidates’ petitions, all circulated during Covid-19, that they have paid attention to the details in how the City of Chicago, State of Illinois and Cook County has addressed, ignored or mishandled the most critical circumstances to the least concerning during very challenging times for all.

During the extended time of uncertainty, the electoral process remained constant. On Monday, candidates began turning in petitions to the Board of Elections, due March 7-14, that will potentially allow them to be on the 2022 ballots.
