IL Gov. Quinn reveals more re-election themes

Monday, 24 March 2014 02:28 Published in Local News
   CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn is questioning his Republican gubernatorial rival's ethics, wealth and stance on minimum wage during his re-election bid.
   The Chicago Democrat raised the issues in a story published in Sunday's Chicago Sun-Times.
   Quinn has already tried to differentiate himself from businessman Bruce Rauner by playing up the venture capitalist's wealth and views on minimum wage. Quinn wants to raise Illinois' rate. Rauner initially said he wanted to cut the rate, later saying he'd raise it under certain circumstances.
   Now Quinn is raising questions about Rauner's business dealings and possible links to Stuart Levine, who was convicted in former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's corruption scandal.
   Rauner's campaign says Quinn is playing "political games" and blasts his signing of a pension overhaul cutting benefits for state employees and retirees.
 
   The search is continuing for a missing St. Peters teen who disappeared last week.  The St. Charles County Sheriff's Department say 18 year old nursing student Bahia Bisharat was last seen Wednesday morning as she went to class at the St. Charles Community College satellite campus near I-64 and Technology Drive in Dardenne Prairie.
   Investigators found the student's car on campus Wednesday evening. It's believed that she arrived for her class in the morning, and may have entered the building. But she never made it to her 8:00 a.m. class.
   Lt. Dave Tieffenbrun says there are three detectives investigating Bisharat's disappearance.  "We don't have any signs of foul play at this point in time, however we're still following up leads," Lt/ Tieffenbrun said.  "This is out of character for this individual, so it is unusual."
   The family has also brought in their own private investigator. 
   Anyone with information is urged to call 911 or (314) 326-6393.
 
 

Cunningham not running for STL County Exec

Thursday, 20 March 2014 03:52 Published in Local News

   Despite months of speculation and tweets this week indicating a big announcement, former Missouri State Senator Jane Cunningham says she's not going to run for St. Louis County Executive.  

   The West County Republican says the party has another candidate in mind, but declined to name names.  Cunningham says voters should expect an announcement on Monday.  

   There had been some criticism of a potential run by Cunningham, since she's only one year into a six-year term as director of the Monarch Fire Protection District and had promised constituents that she wouldn't leave the post early.  

   The GOP will formally nominate a candidate for County Executive in the August primary.
