One important factor for me is missing from this article. How many politicians/bureaucrats have served time in jail for Cook and Iroquois counties? The question is not only quantity of government but quality of government.

You mean they should just keep on footing the bill for every freaking thing? I say the taxpayer has had it! Time to put the goose that lays the golden eggs on a diet. Lets start by cutting our city council and county board in half. Next, every state employee making over $100,000 takes a 10% pay cut. That would be a good start.

Are employees allowed to have their cell phones in the building?? - if so then this is a stupid rule. I doubt the "efficiency" of our government will be impacted much by a cell phone that is turned off.

Selective editing? Please tell me that nobody in the media does that? Oh my gosh....my confidence in the media has been shaken!!! Lots of those around...numerous police videos for example where all you see is the person being taken down and not the reason for the take down.

Theft Austin Creeps reports his black Samsung cell phone taken from where he hid it outside the Adams County Courthouse on 7-16. Maybe the courthouse needs to install a bank of lockers like they have at Scotties: Go in with something you're not supposed to have, like your cell, and you can put in a quarter, lock it up, and grab it on your way out.

State of the State address to focus on economy

5 months, 3 weeks ago From dailyherald.com

From From dailyherald.com:

Gov. Pat Quinn's State of the State address Wednesday gives the Democrat a pulpit to take some of the 2014 political attention back from the four Republican candidates for governor who have been criticizing him.

He's likely to spend at least some time on recent political victories, including signing last month a law cutting public workers' pension benefits.

Quinn spokeswoman Brooke Anderson said he'll do some reflecting on the past but also put a focus on the economy and middle class. Quinn has publicly supported raising the minimum wage to at least $10 an hour.

"It will be jobs, jobs and what's necessary to create jobs," she said.

Democrats across the country are trying to craft a message for 2014 that emphasizes the middle class, and it's one the populist Quinn is likely to embrace. He often punctuates his speeches with: "Everybody in, nobody left out."
