Rutherford claims may be hurdle in governor's race

Monday, 03 February 2014 15:47 Published in Local News
CHICAGO (AP) - Treasurer Dan Rutherford was set to make a big splash in the Republican race for governor this week with his television ads scheduled to hit the airwaves. Instead, he's seeing headlines about allegations of misconduct made by an employee.
 
The Republican called a last-minute news conference last week to say unspecific claims by an employee in his office were untrue and connected to his rival Republican Bruce Rauner.
 
Political experts say the move was risky weeks from the March 18 primary.
 
For one, he opens himself up to more scrutiny. Democratic campaign strategist Pete Giangreco says there are more questions than answers.
 
However, Rutherford could use the attention to his advantage. Political analyst Thom Serafin says it raises Rutherford's exposure level and if handled correctly could benefit him.

Ill. unions, nonprofits want higher caregiver pay

Monday, 03 February 2014 14:29 Published in Local News
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Nonprofit workers, union leaders and groups representing the developmentally disabled are making a push at the Illinois state Capitol for higher caregiver wages.
 
What supporters are calling the "Care Campaign" will deliver 10,000 postcards to Gov. Pat Quinn's office Tuesday. They'll urge him to support legislation increasing wages for caregivers at community nonprofits supported by state funds.
 
Supporters say state funding hasn't kept up with inflation, resulting in low pay for workers. They say many workers take on overtime hours, work second jobs and rely on food stamps to make ends meet.
 
The push comes during a difficult budget year for the state. Budget experts expect Illinois to lose about $1.5 billion in revenue next year if the state's temporary income tax increase is allowed to expire as scheduled.
