“I really got involved this January with fighting against mask mandates,” Kordas told The Courant in an interview. “I’ve been fighting to protect and defend the constitution my entire career. ... In this particular instance, it was hearing my kids cheer when we found out we could choose whether or not to wear masks. We all know that families are unique. Parents should be in a position to make choices. They know their kids and their family situation better than anyone else, and certainly better than administrators at a school and definitely better than the governor making mandates under executive orders.”
Kordas is also concerned about the multiple extensions of Gov. Ned Lamont’s extraordinary powers, which have since ended. She criticized Tong as a “rubber stamp for the governor’s abuse of power.”
