Dale Colee owns Dale’s Southlake Pharmacy and Colee’s Corner Drugs in Macon County. He is an ardent supporter of Illinois’ Critical Access Pharmacy program, which provides state support to independent pharmacies that are being squeezed out of business.

“It was something we needed so badly. It is more critical even at this stage with everything going on with the pandemic.” — Pharmacist Dale Colee, Decatur

“Every single person in Illinois should have access to their medicine, to a pharmacist, to someone they trust to fulfill their medical needs.” — Illinois State Comptroller Susana A. Mendoza
