Quinn Launches Pension Website, Urges Changes

Gov. Pat Quinn has launched a website that outlines the history
of public pensions, its problems and ways to discuss solutions through social
media.
It’s part of the Chicago Democrat’s long-awaited campaign to build support for
an overhaul to Illinois’ pension systems. It’s called the “Thanks in Advance”
campaign, which is supposed to be a message from the next generation to today’s
politicians.
The website includes pictures of young children and a video, along with links
to Twitter and Facebook. The website says there’ll be online town hall meetings
on the issue.
Quinn detailed his “grassroots campaign” yesterday.
Lawmakers have failed to come up with a plan to deal with the roughly $85
billion funding gap, which is the worst of any state. Legislators meet this
month. (AP)
