DECATUR – State Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) offered his congratulations to Decatur Township Supervisor Lisa Stanley on her appointment to serve on the state’s newly formed Commission on Poverty Elimination and Economic Security.  The appointment was recently made by Illinois Senate President Don Harmon.

“Lisa Stanley is a tireless advocate for the voiceless in and around her community and is an ideal fit for this appointment,” Manar said. “She understands the deep challenges associated with generational poverty, and with Lisa on board, I have no doubt that meaningful change can be achieved.”

The Commission on Poverty Elimination and Economic Security’s goal is to effectively inform the public policy making process by providing lawmakers with an understanding of the root social, economic, and cultural causes of poverty and economic insecurity in Illinois.

“I’ve dedicated my life to helping those in need, and serving on this commission gives me the chance to continue improving the lives of those who need it most,” Stanley said. “I’m thankful to President Harmon for the opportunity and to Senator Manar for his advocacy.”

Stanley currently serves as the Decatur Township Supervisor and has worked diligently to provide emergency services and assistance for clients who have no income. Through the duration of the COVID-19 crisis, she has worked with the Decatur Community Foundation and United Way to reoffer assistance for those struggling to pay for rent, utilities, and mortgages.
