What a great vision! Entering the Coronado and seeing all those Boys and Girl Scouts greeting us was thrilling. It’s encouraging to see that such young leaders are willing to participate.

ROCKFORD, IL–Organizers say they were blown away by the volume of voices sharing their vision for the city’s future.
The phone banks were a huge success and Transform Rockford heard from many members of the community.
“The phones were literally ringing off the wall for two hours, there was no break,” said Chuck Konkol, the communication liaison for Transform Rockford.
An estimated 250 calls came in for the phone bank event—which means state liners definitely made their voices heard.
Three specific areas were on the community’s mind—safety, education, and jobs.
Their main concern was how to implement changes and when.
“That’s in the days to come, to figure out as a community how we’re going to do it,” said Konkol.
