The response to the open letter to the governor has been very good – outside of the Capitol. The Daily Herald ran an excerpt in their “Fencepost” section, and Carol Marin wrote an energizing column in today’s Sun-Times. Here’s a taste of Marin’s piece;
“I don't know about you but I've had about all I can stand of charm and good hair in Illinois politics.”
Under the Dome, however, the crickets have been louder than legislators and the Governor. Will ethics, campaign finance reform, Supreme Court public financing, or lobbyist regulation be enacted? The silence out of the Governor’s Office has been stunning.
Stay tuned. Better yet, pick up the phone and ask your legislators.
