March 26, 2013

From Glen Brown’s blog:

Illinois Legislators to thank for upholding the State and U.S. Constitutions.

These 16 Senators did NOT vote yes on SB 1 and SB 35:

Jason Barickman (R) (217-782-6597, Bloomington: 309-661-2788)
Tim Bivins (R) (217-782-0180, Dixon: 815-284-0045)
James Clayborne (D) (217-782-5399, East St. Louis: 618-875-1212)

William Delgado (D) (217-782-5652, Chicago: 773-292-0202)

Gary Forby (D) (217-782-5509, Benton: 618-439-2504)

    Call and thank these people. They are not hearing much support for their courageous votes.

    OK, PREA and teachers who live in in Marty Moylan’s IL legislative district, please join me at the Sugar Bowl Restaurant in downtown Des Plaines this Saturday, March 30 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM for “Coffee and Conversation” with Moylan. Remember those pro-union election brochures he flooded us with last fall? I guess HE doesn’t. The Sugar Bowl is across the street from the Metra Station on Miner between Pearson and Lee.
