Citizens for Giannoulias hosted a fundraiser for Illinois State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias at Roscoe's, 3356 N. Halsted, June 12. The host committee included Chicago Alderman Tom Tunney and Illinois State Representative Greg Harris, who introduced Giannoulias. Tunney spoke about the treasurer's commitment to the LGBT community, including his support for the Center on Halsted. The alderman went on to stress that 'as a community, we are concerned with public policy, fiscal responsibility and social justice,' and that the treasurer had demonstrated his commitment to all three issues.

According to Harris, Giannoulias is the main reason why 'Illinois has been able to keep services for seniors, for people with HIV.' He said that Giannoulias is a 'friend of the community' who's responsible for 'the most LGBT-sensitive policies' and who believes in 'equality for all people.' The treasurer reiterated his commitment to the LGBT community and outlined the policies his office intended to benefit Illinois residents. These policies included the Bright Start College Savings Program and a green energy program, as well as financial incentives for small businesses. Photos by Yasmin Nair
