Quinn park handouts are political ploy

Success - Article sent! close

The state of Illinois is billions in debt and Patrick Quinn plays Santa Claus handing out millions in grants to area park districts.

Planning for the Naperville Park District's recreation center had been complete. Now the park board commissioners must give "additional thought" to how the free millions thrown their way can be used for the center.

Hopefully voters will see through Quinn's vote-buying charade and, in the future, reporters will do their job and challenge Quinn's reckless spending of taxpayer dollars at a time when Illinois is in a fiscal crisis.
