State of Your State: What Issues Are Affecting Illinoisans?
On Wednesday, Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn delivers his first State of the State address. It's an inventory of the priorities and plans for the year ahead, and a measure of how the state is doing. So, we're asking you: How's the State of Your State? This week, we begin a series of personal reflections from Illinois residents navigating these trying times.
We hear from west suburban mom Katherine Buck, Pamela Bozeman-Evans of Blue Gargoyle Community Services, and Rogers Park coffee shop owner Ruth Hoekwater.
