Quinn launches website in pensions campaign
CHICAGO – Gov. Pat Quinn launched a website Sunday outlining a brief history of public pensions, their fiscal problems and ways to discuss solutions through social media, part of the Chicago Democrat’s long-awaited campaign to build public support for an overhaul of Illinois’ underfunded pension system.
The website, http://thisismyillinois.com, includes an at times tongue-in-check video that shows a simplified history of pensions dating back to ancient Rome. It also details the state’s five public pension systems and says online town hall meetings to give feedback are coming soon.
State officials said Sunday that the idea is to provide details about Illinois’ fiscal problems in an easy-to-comprehend way and allow the public to give feedback.
