Wallace Petition Aims to Protect Essential Services
ROCKFORD, Ill. – Inviting residents to make their voice heard during the budget debate, state Rep. Litesa Wallace, D-Rockford, is circulating a petition urging the governor to protect essential services from dangerous cuts. “Throughout the budget making process, I have emphasized the importance of creating a balanced and responsible spending plan that protects the middle class and our most vulnerable residents,” Wallace said. “Since he first proposed a budget, the governor has remained committed to instituting dangerous cuts that would negatively affect childcare services, healthcare providers and low income residents.” Wallace’s petition currently has been signed by over 500 constituents online and in person. As Wallace walks door-to-door within the community, she has been asking residents to sign the petition, in addition to voicing their personal concerns to her. Constituents may add their name by visiting the petition on Change.org at https://goo.gl/fIVZg1, or by contacting Wallace’s office at 815-987-7433. “I thank those who have already signed, and encourage others to add their name and have their voice heard,” Wallace said. “This unnecessary government shutdown has disrupted the lives of many in the community, and I will continue fight for as long as necessary to protect the essential services so many in Rockford depend on.”
