On October 26, I was in Lincoln to testify before a legislative panel conducting a public hearing on the proposed closure of Logan Correctional Center (LCC).

About 1,200 people were in attendance as local leaders and LCC employees spoke before the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability (COGFA) at the Chapel Auditorium on the Lincoln Christian University campus.

I told COGFA members that Governor Pat Quinn’s plan to close LCC poses serious safety risks.

The facts speak for themselves. We can’t afford to close these prisons, particularly those like LCC that are run so efficiently. This facility is needed to protect not only the employees who work so hard here, but also to protect the other inmates and to keep our streets safe. " />
