Governor Quinn Joins Alderman Burke at Archer Park to Announce Upgrades

Governor Pat Quinn stopped by Archer Park on Saturday,
Sept. 27 to announce the designation of more than $300,000 in state funds to help repair and improve some of the facilities at the park.

The funds will help repair the fieldhouse roof and gutters, improve some of the building's interior, and make parking more accessible.

With a host of boys and girls from the Archer Manor Little League around him, the governor said a few words about the importance of park facilities for children and communities.

He praised 14th Ward Alderman Edward M. Burke, who in turn pledged his key support in getting the governor elected on Tuesday, Nov. 4.
