It is time for real solutions to the state’s issues. Universities like SIU in Edwardsville have been forced to make tight cuts and have faced layoffs. Organizations like Senior Services Plus in Alton have had to cut back on meals on wheels programs and are unable to fully provide services to our area’s seniors. It’s time to sit down and pass legislation to fix these issues. We have a plan in the senate and I am ready to get to work. I just hope the governor is willing to compromise.
