DuPage Democrats Rally to Support Pate Phillip

No, not the infamous GOP strongman.

Rob Bisceglie's team is supporting the state park in DuPage County that bears the name of the notorious Mr. Phillip.
:: Rally to Save our State Park ::
Saturday, June 24, Starting at 1:00 PM

Fight together with Rob to protect and promote the only state park in our region- Pate Philip State Park. Last year, the State and DuPage County managed to keep the park open only after public pressure lead them to find funding in last minute closed-door negotiations. Next week, that money will run out. Bring friends, family, and signs as we draw attention to the plight of our local state park.

Where: 2050 W. Stearns Rd, Bartlett
More info: As always, all are welcome. Feel free to call the Bisceglie campaign at 630.523-5748 with any questions.
If you can imagine a Republican candidate working to support an "Emil Jones, Jr. State Park," then your imagination is far superior to mine.

UPDATE: Is Rob Bisceglie
already successfully fighting for his neighbors in Springfield? It sure looks like it?
James "Pate" Philip State Park--located where DuPage, Cook and Kane Counties converge--will expand services under a new funding agreement, the state's Department of Natural Resources announced Friday.

The agreement came just a week before last year's funding arrangement was due to expire--and it followed a year in which the west-suburban park--one of the nearest state parks to downtown Chicago--saw visitation drop sharply as it ran on bare-bones staffing and with both programming and hours reduced.
Will Rob Bisceglie win for you?

Hell yes -- he already has.

Oh, come know Emil wouldn't name a park after himself...

He reserves that stuff for Chicago State University! ;)
