SPRINGFIELD – State Representative Sara Wojcicki Jimenez (R-Springfield) is calling on state agencies to study the feasibility of moving state jobs to Springfield.

“Springfield is very proud to be Illinois’ capital city,” Jimenez said. “As many state functions and as many state employees as possible should be based here in the seat of state government.”

Jimenez has introduced a resolution calling on agencies under the statewide elected officials to compile a report listing the number of state employees in each county, their job description and a justification of why those positions, specifically upper and middle management, cannot be located in Springfield. The report would not require detailed information about direct service workers, just the number of such positions by division and facility.

On Wednesday, members of the House and Senate joined together in marking Go Red Day at the Capitol in support of the American Heart Association. Heart disease is the number one cause of death for women in America. The annual Go Red event helps to promote awareness of heart health for women of all ages throughout Illinois.

“The only way forward at the museum, and with all the other things we work on every day, is in the spirit of compromise,” says Wojcicki Jimenez.  “And, to keep working at it until we find a solution.  I think this is a good example of that today.”
