Illinois Turnaround Tour

Governor Bruce Rauner

Governor Bruce Rauner will spend this week promoting his agenda to residents of Illinois. Today he'll start the "Turnaround Tour" that will stop in 17 counties, through Saturday.

The tour's first stops will be in Chicago and the collar counties, today and tomorrow, then he'll travel to Winnebago and Rock Island counties on Wednesday. 
Thursday's stops will include Adams and Peoria counties, with southern and eastern Illinois counties Friday and Saturday. 
A press release says Rauner will present details of his legislative plans, including ways to promote jobs and the economy of the state, plus freezing property taxes and pension reform. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
