  • Time: 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM (doors open at 6:30 PM)
  • Location: Stevenson High School, 1 Stevenson Drive, Room 2104, Lincolnshire, IL 60069

If the November 2020 progressive income tax hike passes, what’s the amount the State estimates will be used for the State contribution to the state pension funds?

Mark or Ted. Try to come back out to Belvidere or Rockford. See if any of the local Reps will invite you. Prairie Street Brewhouse would be a good spot in Rockford.

great point DantheMan–keep it simple. I like to think I’m informed by reading wp, ipi, and papers, etc but am still confused by all the complexities of Illinois fiscal disaster. 90% of the voting/taxpayer public are clueless and never read anything. only if your dumb enough (like me)to try and own a home hear do you know your getten screwed.

Looks like Dan Biss is no longer associated with Rust Belt Rising. Lasted less than a year as ED. Talk about a quiet exit.
