Harrisburg Rep Urges Attendance At Conference Regarding Work Camp Closure

(ELIZABETHTOWN, IL) — Democratic State Rep. Brandon Phelps of Harrisburg is urging you to attend a hearing this afternoon concerning Governor Rauner’s planned closure of the Hardin County Work Camp. The hearing, hosted by the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability will start at 2 p.m. at the Hardin County High School in Elizabethtown. Phelps, who has also been collecting petition signatures in support of saving the camp, says the only way to push against the closure is for local residents and community stakeholders to send a strong message.
