Mayor Krewson announced declaring a public health emergency not at a press conference on the steps of City Hall but on Twitter. In a tweet that provided little context, was confusing about the status of schools & churches and offered no link for additional information, testing or supplies. Don’t see aldermen or councilmen on the ground in their districts or wards. But, but, but Trump.
