EAST PEORIA, IL -- Want to picket Gov. Bruce Rauner?
He's the rich CEO standing against a budget for Illinois, trying to destroy unions before he will do a budget. Meanwhile state human services and universities are suffering, even failing.
Rauner is speaking at a Republican Lincoln Day dinner (Ok, it's not Lincoln's birthday but what the heck?) at the Embassy Suites hotel on April 4. (Yes, that's the day of the municipal elections, but what the heck?)
The AFSCME and SEIU unions are meeting at 5:30 pm on Tues. April 4 at 100 Conference Center Dr., East Peoria, to picket Rauner. All can join them. Suggested sign: "Negotiate Don't Dictate."
