Pat Quinn Saves The Day!
Governor Pat Quinn saves the day with the appointment of a statewide director of diversity!
Through diversity, Patt Quinn will improve the cost and quality of government construction contracts, while curbing clout and corruption! And of course a diversity czar will improve the lives of impoverished minorities and not just further enrich politically connected contractors!
