DGA lauches two-city tour, Medium page

Tuesday, Sep 19, 2017

* The DGA is trying to get some Downstate coverage today…

Today, the DGA launches the Rauner’s Broken Record website to accompany the group’s statewide tour. The tour makes stops today in Springfield and Carbondale and will feature Illinois voters speaking about how Rauner’s failed leadership has negatively impacted their communities.

Rauner promised his business experience would right Illinois’ fiscal stewardship and grow jobs, but the opposite has happened. Under Rauner, jobs were lost, debt climbed, and social services were devastated. Rauner wants voters to give him a second-term, but his Broken Record shows he failed to earn it.

View the site here.

“Bruce Rauner can try and blame others all he wants, but his failures are unavoidable,” said DGA Illinois Communications Director Sam Salustro. “Despite his broken record, Rauner thinks he should get a second term. Illinois voters will not forget the damage Rauner did to the state, and know that a second Rauner term only means more debt, more job loss, and fewer services.”

* From the media advisory…


Where: Outside the Governor’s Mansion at 5th and Jackson

When: 9:30 am, Tuesday September 19th

Who: The Rauner’s Broken Record Tour will feature Springfield Alderwoman Doris Turner and Sangamon County Board Member Tony DelGiorno along with local community members who will speak out about Rauner’s failed record.


Where: Heartland Apartments, 805 East College Street, Carbondale IL

When: 2:15 pm, Tuesday September 19th

Who: The Rauner’s Broken Record Tour will feature former Lieutenant Governor Shelia Simon along with local community members who will speak out about Rauner’s failed record.

I get Doris Turner and even Sheila Simon, but Tony DelGiorno?

    Delgiorno doesn’t deliver

  2. - Streator Curmudgeon - Tuesday, Sep 19, 17 @ 12:00 pm:

    I guess Quinnochio is too busy with petitions.

  3. - Anon221 - Tuesday, Sep 19, 17 @ 12:02 pm:

    “DelGiorno, who is a member of the Sangamon County Board, said he has not made a decision about running again in 2018.”

    Could this be why DelGiorno was there?

  4. - Give Me A Break - Tuesday, Sep 19, 17 @ 12:05 pm:

    I know DelGiorno has an interest and does work in the human services arena, could be why he was there.

  5. - LizPhairTax - Tuesday, Sep 19, 17 @ 12:07 pm:

    Anybody ever seen Shaw Decremer and Tony DelGiorno in the same place at the same time?

  6. - City Zen - Tuesday, Sep 19, 17 @ 12:08 pm:

    Bruce is looking hip and healthy in that form fitting scoop neck T.

  7. - Ghost - Tuesday, Sep 19, 17 @ 12:11 pm:

    I just wish someone would do a downstate tour in an ice cream truck…. soon before the weather turns…. or get a hot chocolate and Carmel popcorn truck…. either way if your driving around anyway….

  8. - Give me a break #2 - Tuesday, Sep 19, 17 @ 12:41 pm:

    Jimenez’s 2016 opponent, Democrat Tony DelGiorno, said Monday that despite being encouraged to run again, he is not planning to be a candidate. He said he and his wife talked over the potential of another race this year, and decided “I can best serve Springfield by working as hard as I can to elect a Democratic governor next year.”

  9. - Anon221 - Tuesday, Sep 19, 17 @ 12:47 pm:

    Thanks for the update Give me a break #2.

  10. - Arthur Andersen - Tuesday, Sep 19, 17 @ 1:03 pm:

    Never dawned on them the Mansion is vacant and under construction?

  11. - Pot calling kettle - Tuesday, Sep 19, 17 @ 1:08 pm:

    ==Never dawned on them the Mansion is vacant and under construction? ==

    It’s a metaphor for the Rauner administration.

  12. - The Captain - Tuesday, Sep 19, 17 @ 1:14 pm:

    I had high hopes for the DGA this year, they’ve been a disappointment.

  13. - Publius - Tuesday, Sep 19, 17 @ 4:04 pm:

    Wow rich,

    Let’s see Tony ran for state rep and tried to punt out failed policies of the governor maybe that’s why

    Or maybe because he is an elected democrat in sangamon county where Andy Van meter, the Michael madigan of sangamon county controls the county board like an iron fist. Even the other 4 democrats follow his commands.

    Who else should have spoken?

  14. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Sep 20, 17 @ 7:24 am:

    Tony is probably their because Springfield has been hit hard by Rauner. The city is struggling and it doesn’t matter who you are (unless your on Rauner’s Team) you are feeling the pain that Rauner is causing.
