[ARCHIVED] DMMC Launches Website Providing Info on Proposed State Cuts to Local Funding
Willowbrook is a proud member of the DuPage Mayors and Managers Conference (DMMC), which recently launched a new website ProtectMyTown.us.Protect My Town Episode Featuring Mayor Trilla
The new website and social media opportunities enable Illinoisans to directly engage their state legislators and Governor. The website explains why the state should resist attempts to use local tax dollars to fill state budget gaps, which shifts the tax burden on to local communities and taxpayers.
The process is incredibly simple: After logging on to ProtectMyTown.us, it only takes three easy steps to directly contact your legislators and the Governor: 1) Fill out your information; 2) Review your letter; and 3) Hit the Send Letter button to complete the form and send the letter to lawmakers.
Please take a look at www.ProtectMyTown.us!
An exciting new addition this year is the continuation of an educational video series. The latest video showcases local mayors (including Willowbrook Mayor Trilla) discussing how cutting the Local Government Distributive Fund negatively effects their towns.
