The Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce and Lincon/Logan County Economic Development Partnership held a “Save Logan March” October 13 in support of keeping Logan Correctional Center open. A prior commitment kept me from attending, but I sent a letter (seen below) of support that was read at the rally.

October 13, 2011

Dear Friends,

I am sorry that I could not be with you as a calendar commitment has me out of the area. I applaud and embrace your march and your efforts to do what is right not only Logan County, but for the people of Illinois. Lincoln Logan Correctional Center cannot close, and the threat of this action only impedes the economic challenges which Logan County and Lincoln are willing to overcome. It also delays meaningful spending reforms in our state government which need to be addressed immediately. " />
