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 ::If you can imagine a Republican candidate working to support an "Emil Jones, Jr. State Park," then your imagination is far superior to mine.
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.
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.Will Rob Bisceglie win for you?
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.
Hell yes -- he already has.
