To be delivered to: Governor Pat Quinn
As a career firefighter in the State of Illinois, I have paid into my pension fund without ever missing a payment. State Government Officials have historically allowed State and Municipal employers (my boss) the right to ignore their responsibility to provide adequate funding contributions into State/Municipal pensions, resulting in an 83 BILLION DOLLAR PENSION SHORTFALL. There is talk of A POSSIBLE FEDERAL BAILOUT after the election for Illinois. EVERY US CITIZEN should SignOn to this Petition to tell Gov. Pat Quinn: SOLVE YOUR OWN FINANCIAL PROBLEMS. My State can't afford to clean up the mess that your State caused!
