Trust Ill. Governor On Empty Promises

Published July 13, 2006

Dear Editor:

Gov. Rod Blagojevich derided challenger Judy Baar Topinka’s jobs-creation plan as full of “empty promises.” I haven’t seen Ms. Topinka’s proposal, but my instinct would be to trust the Governor on this one. He is, after all, the state’s leading expert on empty promises.
