THE iLLINOIS OBSERVER covers Illinois, Cook County, and City of Chicago government news, politics, and campaigns that likely go uncovered.
This publication focuses on the often strenuous and the occasionally senseless efforts of the Illinois General Assembly, the Governor, the Cook County Board President, the Mayor, the not-so-special interest groups, hired lobbyists, citizen lobbyists, organized labor, disorganized labor, reporters, public relations wizards, bloggers, and political campaigns to shape or misshape public opinion and pretzel-twist public policy.
It’s a job.
THE iLLINOIS OBSERVER, ranked among the top 10 of independent Illinois political blogs, follows many of these unending wrangles and contests over policy and political power or, often over, well, nothing.
