LBM Chestnut - Never thought I would see a reference to Chestnut trees on here LOL. I want to plant also. I know the American Chestnut Foundation will ship you potentially blight resistant seeds if you join. $300,$500,$1000 for 4,6,12 seeds respectively. I can’t do that yet ..feel like Jack trading the cow for magic beans ..
From today’s POLITICO Illinois Playbook: “When Lisa Madigan retires, [Mendoza] will be the highest-ranking woman in state government - people should know about her.” - Patti Solis Doyle, Democratic consultant and former Obama adviser
My question is: Who is higher ranking, the Lt. Governor or the Comptroller?

Glad to see you’re okay and feeling better, Rich.
Happy 420 day. Schumer’s going to introduce a marijuana decrim bill in DC very soon. Wishing it well and hoping we get out of the dark ages nationally on marijuana.
Ugh…enough of the Rotheimer/Ives/INN misappropriation of the #metoo movement. Stop…just stop. Your attack was ineffectual because conduct unbecoming of a legislator is not a criminal act and does not warrant the weaponizing of a valid complaint process. Look you destroyed a sitting Senator over an unfounded allegation. Take your victory and move on. At this point you are doing more harm than good to #metoo in my opinion. But there again, maybe like Rauner, that’s what you want. Perfidy
Get up one hour later every day. Put your feet up, listen to music every midday. Keep your puppy close every minute you can.
And don’t put in the hours during general election as you did during primary.
Maybe take Monday off too at least for one week.
==My question is: Who is higher ranking, the Lt. Governor or the Comptroller? ==
Presumably the Attorney General and Comptroller, both women, are on the same level. Your question actually is who ranks higher - Lt. Governor or the other constitutional officers.
Given that we already have a female Lt Governor and the Democratic Lt. Governor candidate is female, who wins that office in November is moot.
I believe both the Attorney General and Comptroller outrank the Lt. Governor. I also believe that the Governor is equal to the other constitutional officers. So, I believe that once Lisa retires the comptroller will be the highest ranking female politician in the state.
I believe the ACF Chestnut seedlings are pure American while most of the blight-resistant trees are a blend of American and other varieties. I think Lucille has a great program with the ACF trees, but do not know that they are ready for production plantings yet. I think you still get quite a bit of blight in the majority of trees from that source.
