Group Slams Governor Bruce Rauner’s Non-Budget Address for the 3rd Year in a Row

On Wednesday, following the Governor’s budget address, community members tired of Rauner’s blame game and policies of targeted community disinvestment will join with legislators to announce a new plan to put people back on the agenda in Illinois.

The status quo has failed millions of Illinoisans and Rauner doubled down on this failure.  The people of Illinois are a smart investment. Instead of wasting public resources on providing loopholes for corporations and wealthy stock traders, the group will lay out a legislative agenda that provides Illinois families with the programs and services they need to prosper.

The event will be held February 15th 2017 at the Illinois State Capital, outside the Governor’s Office, in Springfield, Il at 1:20 p.m.

Members of the General Assembly standing in support, Members of the Grassroots Collaborative including:  Brighton Park Neighborhood Council, Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, Chicago Teachers Union, Jane Addams Senior Caucus, SEIU Healthcare Illinois, will be in attendance, including:


Representative Chris Welch (D-7)

Representative Sonya Harper (D-6)

Representative Litesa Wallace (D-67)

Amisha Patel, Executive Director of Grassroots Collaborative

Alejandro Sanchez, Brighton Park Neighborhood Council

Janet Ramos, Chicago Coalition for the Homeless

Cassandra Roley, SEIU Healthcare Illinois
