State officials need to hear our views on Illiana

April 14, 2013 12:00 am

The voters of south Lake County had a meeting on Monday with more than 150 true stakeholder landowners about the proposed Illiana toll road in Lowell.

Why are the governor and state lawmakers ignoring our plea for attention on a dangerous life-changing issue? Do our concerns about public safety and revenue matter to them? Will we need to come down to Indy and lobby our elected officials?

We constituents are rallying together with public safety concerns, common sense and votes! We stand ready to speak respectfully to state officials.

The proposed Illiana toll road's impact on us warrants state officials' attention to our concerns. Show us you care. Remember we sent thousands of signatures on petitions in the past!

We are voters, taxpayers, farmers, businesspeople and homeowners. We all agreed we are being ignored by most state officials. Will you change that please?
