Meeting with relatives of residents at the Murray Developmental Center Republican candidate for governor Bruce Rauner says they should have a choice in their family members’ care. He supports keeping open a center for people with developmental disabilities in Centralia that his opponent is trying to close.

However, Governor Pat Quinn campaign spokeswoman Izabela Miltko says Rauner is showing a disregard for how his campaign promises conflict with his promise to cut spending, insisting that closing outdated institutions saves taxpayer dollars.

Miltko says Quinn’s policy decision would lead Illinois away from being the state that institutionalizes more people with developmental disabilities than any other in the nation, providing more choices and community care options.
