Sosnowski Responds to Rockford Crime Spree

Rockford… State Representative Joe Sosnowski (R-Rockford) issued the following statement in response to the press conference held by city and county leaders in regards to the recent crime spree in Rockford.

“We absolutely need structural change in the budgeting process to ensure those most in need of services receive assistance, including juveniles heading down the wrong path. Mentoring and teaching our youth should be a focal point of our statewide policies; therefore, structural spending reforms are vital to overcome the current status quo. I stand committed to finding a bipartisan solution to the budget impasse, in light of Springfield leadership’s decades of failed policies.”
