Letters to the Editor


With our new governor comes the realization that a tremendous number of Democrats decided to do the right thing and vote Republican. The most obvious reason; they were tired of their state being trashed.

There are more people in Illinois on Welfare than working. Chicago schoolteachers are among the highest paid in the nation, yet their school system is among the worst in the nation. With the strictest gun laws, why so many killings in Chicago? Failed leadership. State pension fund $78 billion in debt. Worst in nation. Having former Illinois governors and representatives in prison doesn’t help the reputation of the Land of Lincoln at all.
