Props to Leslie Munger for delaying legislators pay

October 11, 2016

Being a first-generation Hispanic American whose parents came to the Rockford area pre-1920s, I was born here, owned my own business, raised my own family and am now in retirement and have chosen to stay in Rockford. I can honestly say I have seen the best, and some of the worst out of our local and state-elected officials.

I applaud Leslie Munger for delaying legislators’ pay. We need someone to stand up for the small businesses and nonprofits who haven’t been paid in months or years. Legislators should feel the consequences just like everyone else. Legislators have been creating a financial disaster in this state for decades, with no thought to the future generations of young people whom it will be effecting. They are now getting a taste of their own medicine.

Kudos to Comptroller Leslie Munger for making them wait in line like everyone else. I hope to get a yard sign to show my support and will be voting for her come November.
