I wonder how well received by the Cook County Board Bridget Gainer will be? I suspect Todd Stroger, Bill Beavers and some of the GOP commissioners won't be too thrilled knowing she is a big Forrest Claypool supporter.
Last night on Chicago Tonight Eddie Arruza interviewed Congressman Mark Kirk who said we were ranked 45Th among states with job creation, and we have people leaving the State of Illinois, 700,000 was what he quoted. Cook County: 38, Henry County: 50, Knox County: 89, Macon County: 97, and Vermilion County: 100. According to the top 101 list NY and Ohio have more Counties on the list.
