Free up money for medical transportation for poor

I have a friend in my apartment in Schererville on Medicaid who is entitled to free transportation to doctor's offices. But because the St. John Township trustee won't release the funds for this transportation that covers from U.S. 30 to St. John, she cannot get the free ride she's entitled to. This is unfair to people on Medicaid who desperately need this free transportation!

I call on St. John Township to please reconsider releasing these funds to help these people. It will not break the township's bank or the funds the trustee is sitting on!
