In a statement on Monday, Assemblymember Jordan Cunningham announced that he and a bipartisan group of state lawmakers sent Governor Newsom a letter asking that he allow youth sports to resume play.

“Having coached dozens of youth sports teams, I understand how important organized sports are for many of our kids,” said Cunningham. “I am proud to support the #LetThemPlay campaign, and was glad to sign this letter with 32 of my legislative colleagues across the political spectrum. We can safely get our kids back onto the field – it’s time for the Governor to allow youth sports to resume.”

Cunningham echoes similar calls from local student-athletes and their parents. The lawmaker is also the co-sponsor of the Let Them Play Assembly Resolution.
