Too bad. He could have helped QND. I understand that funds was the problem. His wife wasn't hired as a teacher (only teachers aid) and he hoped to land a side job as principal at another school, which didn't happen, so he had to follow the money. Hey QND, Andy Douglas has brothers.

Honestly, it seems to me like QND dodged a bullet and will be far better off without "Coach" Shields. Dude has taken four coaching jobs in the last six years?!? That's absolutely ridiculous... and it certainly seems to indicate pretty clearly that his priority is NOT the young men that he's coaching (or even in displaying any sort of long-term loyalty to the many schools that he was hired…

I don't think he was brought here to work, he came when he was 16. This is crap about a permanent resident and that he came legally. There is only one person responsible for him being legal.

Rauner solidifies opposition to minimum wage hike without reforms

1 year, 1 month ago suntimes.com

Illinois voters approve a November ballot advisory question to increase the state’s minimum wage, that alone will not be enough for Bruce Rauner to push for an increase if he’s elected governor.

The Republican candidate for governor said in an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times on Wednesday that even if a majority of voters say they support an increase in Illinois’ minimum wage, it should not be enacted without a series of pro-business reforms.

“As I’ve said all along, I absolutely will support raising the minimum wage in Illinois, but I want to insist that it be included with business reform, workers comp reform, tax rate reduction and tort reform,” Rauner said. “Then I will advocate for it.” 

Asked how he thought he could get the immense package of measures through the state Legislature, the Winnetka venture capitalist said: “I think it’s very doable. I will be working closely with the general assembly.”

Rauner suffered a minimum wage mishap early in his campaign after video showed him saying he was “adamantly, adamantly” against raising the minimum wage in Illinois and believed it should be lowered by $1 an hour to make it equitable with the federal minimum wage. That opened him up to a backlash, which he took on by saying he would in fact be for an increase as long as the federal minimum wage also was increased or if a series of pro-business reforms was pushed through.

On Sunday, Gov. Pat Quinn signed a measure that would put a question on the November ballot asking voters whether the state’s minimum wage should be increased.

Rauner said his position hasn’t changed.
