Sen. Doris Turner

SPRINGFIELD – The Village of Stonington and South Fork Township will receive vital funding, thanks to State Senator Doris Turner.

Turner (D-Springfield) fought to secure funding to support the municipalities as they make improvements to the Stonington Community Center and Kinkaid Senior Center to better serve residents in the area.

“These facilities serve as an opportunity to foster active living and encourage a sense of community,” said Turner. “I am grateful to work with Supervisor Dennis Foli and Mayor Bruce Dowdy to secure this funding and serve the residents of these areas.”

Turner made a request for this funding to be released swiftly. The Village of Stonington will receive $100,000 and South Fork Township will receive $75,000 both to make infrastructure improvements to these key facilities.

“The investments we are making in the Christian County area will help enhance and strengthen the lives of residents,” said Turner. “This is a small way for us to improve the quality of life and sense of community.”

Turner advocated for this project during capital infrastructure negotiations.
