Since you're a small business owner, you probably don't have to deal with an union representing your employees. With them being unionized, they have a lot more pull than a single employee coming to you for a raise. You could tell your employee "no", they could either be understanding or they could leave your job and work for the next small business owner that provides raises. You tell…

Wow, you got me thinking hard, which isn't hard to do. I m certain the council will have it figured out (surely), but since it didn't pass, doesn't someone that voted against it have to make a motion to bring it back to a vote and have to vote YES automatically? Or where am I dreaming that up from?

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.
