governor quinn – Social Mention
The Illinois Legislature is voting TOMORROW on a bill may silence the voice of The People …not conservatives, not liberals, ALL The People. "Our democracy is always strongest when more people make their voices heard. As Governor, my job is to defend our democracy and always protect the right of citizens to express their concerns, put forth their ideas, and do what they can to improve their lives and their communities." -These are the opening words of a letter from Gov. Quinn to the Illinois General Assembly. You may or may not like Governor Quinn, but he stuck up for The People. Please see below his entire letter to the Illinois General Assembly on a bill he vetoed so that Illinoisans could retain their voice on both sides of the aisle. Then call the following IL House Members AND your own House member and ask them to uphold Gov. Quinn’s veto of HB2454, which essentially prevents citizens from putting substantive advisory questions on the ballot at the township level…that is any substantive questions…conservative or liberal, yay or nay. Questions like: "Should we repeal Obamacare? Should we have campaign finance reform?" Rep. Barbara Wheeler 217-782-1664 Rep. Robyn Gabel 217-782-8052 Rep. Barbara Flynn Currie 217-782-8121 Rep.

If you do not know who you IL legislators are, go to: votesmart.org Type in your address in the field on the right and hit the SEARCH button. Scroll down and click on the link to ‘Legislative’ and click on the name of your rep or senator. To the far bottom right is their contact information. Governor Quinn’s letter to IL General Assembly: August 16, 2013 To the Honorable Members of the Illinois House of Representatives, 98th General Assembly: I hereby return House Bill 2454 with specific recommendations for change. Our democracy is always strongest when more people make their voices heard. As Governor, my job is to defend our democracy and always protect the right of citizens to express their concerns, put forth their ideas, and do what they can to improve their lives and their communities. A portion of this bill is consistent with these efforts, as it requires townships to increase the notice period for public meetings from 10 days to 15 days. The bill also requires the agenda for the township’s annual meeting to be adopted fifteen days in advance of the meeting. I commend the sponsors for advancing these provisions, which will give busy citizens a greater opportunity to attend and participate in township meetings. However, this legislation simultaneously silences the voices of the citizens by limiting the topics which may be the subject of advisory referenda. By restricting the public policy issues which may be raised via referenda to those “directly related to the business of the township,” this bill undercuts the democratic process. While the business of the township is no doubt important, other issues are of equal or greater importance to the citizens, such as health care and the minimum wage. Our citizens must be able to weigh in and address those issues as well. Government belongs to the people. We must do all we can to ensure they have the opportunity to make their voices heard on these important issues. Therefore, pursuant to Article IV, Section 9(e) of the Illinois Constitution of 1970, I hereby return House Bill 2454, entitled “AN ACT concerning local government.”, with the following specific recommendations for change: On page 1, line 5, by replacing “Sections 30-10, 30-50, and 30-205” with “Sections 30-10 and 30-50”; and On page 7 by deleting lines 1 through 10. With these changes, House Bill 2454 will have my approval. I respectfully request your concurrence. Sincerely, Pat Quinn GOVERNOR

Those of you who have NOT seen what he is planning to do for you…please visit this website. http://www.brucerauner.com I’m collecting signatures to get him on the ballot and we have seen tremendous success. This isn’t a vote…it’s simply a signature that says as an Illinois voter you believe he deserves an opportunity to be on the ballot. You’re simply giving him a shot. I have met and worked for a number of the other candidates but this guy is just simply different. You guys all know how selectively passionate I am when it comes to candidates….this isn’t about "the party" this is about the people. Give it a look and tell me what you think! A first generation citizen born into poverty, Evelyn Sanguinetti has achieved the American Dream and will work hard everyday to ensure more in Illinois are able to reach it too. She and Bruce Rauner are ready to fight for you. Together, we will Bring Back Illinois.
