Illinois is one of three states to lose a congressional seat (people fleeing the state) in the last census. What to do? Gerrymander districts to eliminate opposition and for good measure change the Supreme Court districts for the first time in 60 years, propose an Illinois constitutional amendment making unionizing a right in the state, have an elected school board in Chicago against the Mayor’s wishes. 

Doubling down on failed policies will not stem the tide of people leaving this once great state.
