Pat Quinn named chairman of Midwestern Governors Association
"I am honored to become Chairman of the Midwestern Governors Association. The association has a long history of governors who are committed to working together to improve our entire region, and I look forward to continuing that legacy," said Governor Quinn. "Now, more than ever, we need to band together to create sustained economic growth and success throughout the Midwest."The other governors must have awarded him this honor because he's going to increase their revenues so much from the stampede to get the hell out of Illinois - or Quinn is just so damn good at lying that they decided to make him their leader. Maybe he promised he was only going to raise their dues 'a little bit.'
Governor Quinn assumed office on Monday, January 10, 2011 and will serve as chair through February of 2012.
