Letters to the Editor

End the budget impasse

This letter is written to express my displeasure with the state government of Illinois and their failure to pass a budget. Illinois owes my small business $16,000, which is long overdue. Another example of their negligence is the adult daycare which serves our community, including indigent pensioners and handicapped, it is owed $140,000.

This issue of state governments’ fiscal irresponsibility has reached the point of crisis and many businesses and services are now forced to cut back and even close down.

I urge Illinois voters to make this the top issue in the upcoming March primaries. Let’s throw the present bums out of office. Vote for candidates who demonstrate a commitment to pass a budget immediately!

Richard Greiff, Belleville
