We will be heard!!

“They” are counting voices folks. “They” say I am not being heard. What “they” don’t realize is that I have a force behind me that will not be denied. Feel free to call, email and let em know


Our local Developmental Services Center took a 300k cut in funding due to Governor Blagojevich cutting the entire State budget for Developmental Services, by 60 million dollars. Please take a moment today to contact our Governor’s office to ask that he sign the bill to restore the funding for Human Services. They count how many voices they hear from. Senator Frerichs told us that we aren’t being heard by the Governor. Please forward this to anyone you think would take the time to weigh in on this very important issue.

Our challenge now is to make sure Governor Blagojevich signs both SB 1103 and SB 790 into law immediately! We are so very close, but if the Governor fails to sign these bills—the cuts will remain.

Senator Frerichs “strongly encourages” us to get as many people as we can to contact the Governors’ office and insist he sign these bills immediately. There will be a lot of political pressure to use this money for other things. We have to let the Governor know that the people of the state are watching and it is time for him “To Do The Right Thing” and restore the services/supports to our states most vulnerable citizens!

Believe me, they will be keeping track of how many contacts they receive. If we don’t fight for these funds others will.

Find below the Governor’s contact information.

    Amy you are such a strong voice and such a motivator to all of us who don’t know where or exactly how we should speak out!! Thank you for that! I did contact the governor’s office and I passed your blog along to everyone in my contact list who I know will definately speak for our children.
