They sell tents at Wal-Mart. Based on the quality of work they do that would be to good for them.

I am happy for Rome also. Does the law require that all that time and money be spent to look for a new person when he was the man to start with? Just curious. All three were great picks but Rome has a lifetime of experience with this type of thing.

I wish it showed a line item cost for the Gov. Mansion (utilities, security, maintenance, etc.) I doubt that Rauner would live there either. "It would be cheaper to own a Hotel/Motel in Springfield and have the elected officials stay there when in town and the other rooms would help pay for it. The sale of those homes would buy a hotel/motel".

I LOVE seeing all the positive comments. Great choice made by the board. QPD is going in the right direction. Congrats Rome!

Frankenhoff said it was Frericks' call as to if the job was filled and who would fill it.

Says he thinks he can build on the support he had in 2010

Illinois State Senator and 2010 Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Brady says he might run again for the state’s top office.

Brady, who lost to current Governor Pat Quinn, says he’s waiting a few more months to jump into the race.

“I’m trying to avoid starting a campaign until June. I’d like through this legislative session because I do believe that some of the issues we’re facing will require bipartisan support and I’d like to keep the campaigning and the politics out of it until after this General Assembly,” said Brady.

Brady, who carried all but four counties in 2010 but still lost the election, said he thinks this election will be different.

“(There’s a) huge number of people in the general election who think we need to finish the job. We came 16,000 votes short and so I think we can build on that. I don’t think you can underestimate the political skills of Pat Quinn. This guy’s made a career and a living off of fooling voters and it won’t be an easy race, but I think this time we’ll get the job done.”

Brady said he thinks Quinn will have a tough primary if Attorney General Lisa Madigan decides to run. He also said he thinks Quinn deserves to lose to her if she does run.

Brady made his comments Thursday on The Morning Meeting on Talkradio 930 WTAD. You can listen to the full interview here.
