Governor Pat Quinn proposed closure of Tamms Correctional Center

We the undersigned urge our lawmakers to oppose the announced closure of Tamms Correctional Center and the related cutbacks in vital programs in state government which ensure safe and secure prisons, help to safeguard and sustain children and families, and assist those with severe disabilities. Such closures, layoffs and cutbacks add to the ranks of the unemployed and make our community less safe. We call on our legislators to pledge their public support for legislation that will balance the state budget, stop facility closures, halt layoffs and restore vital services.

Signed,

Kyle Massey
