Dwight mayor blasts Quinn as prison closures begin
(MCT) — DWIGHT — A southern Illinois judge’s decision to lift an injunction that had been stopping Gov. Pat Quinn from closing prisons in Dwight and elsewhere was not only bad news for those opposed to the closures, but also bad timing, said Dwight Mayor Bill Wilkey on Thursday.
“I don’t know how the governor and his aides sleep at night,” Wilkey said. “This (the closure effort) has been going since February and the employees and everyone else must feel like they are in limbo. And now to get more bad news right before Christmas is very disappointing. The kind of stuff this governor is doing, I wouldn’t do to my worst enemy.”
