Protect My Town Campaign Launched
The Village of Bartlett is a member of the DuPage Mayors and Managers Conference (DMMC), a council of 33 municipal governments located in DuPage County. Recently, the DMMC launched a new statewide campaign - Protect My Town - that helps and encourages Illinois residents to voice their opposition to proposed state cuts to the Local Government Distributive Fund. As part of this initiative, the DMMC created a new website, ProtectMyTown.us, that allows residents to directly engage with their state legislators and the governor. The website also explains why the state should resist attempts to use local tax dollars to fill state budget gaps, which shifts the tax burden onto local communities and taxpayers.
The process to contact your state legislators and the governor is simple. After logging onto ProtectMyTown.us, it only takes three easy steps to let your voice be heard:
- Fill out your information
- Review your letter
- Hit the Send Letter button to complete the form and send the letter to lawmakers
