Key GOV Race issues:

Jeff Berkowitz and Terry Martin discuss the key IL 2022 gubernatorial election issues of soaring violent crime, skyrocketing property taxes, falling home property values, teachers’ unions controlling education while ignoring parental preferences and guiding their members to engage in much more sex education- especially for fifth graders and younger kids- than most parents think is age appropriate.  

Berkowitz and Martin ask what has Governor Pritzker done about the above-referenced issues in three years and what have the GOP Gov candidates proposed as solutions or antidotes to Pritzker’s policies or failure to address those issues. 

Critical Race Theory and systemic racism: What’s taught? Is it accurate?

Also discussed is the infusion of critical race theory in IL public schools, including teaching that U. S. and IL Governmental entities have always been and continue to be dominated by systemic racism, white privilege and oppression of blacks and Latinos by whites.

Is Pritzker’s IL State Board of Education responsible for these instructional policies, coercion of teachers and indoctrination of students?

How would GOP gubernatorial candidates Senator Darren Bailey, former Senator Paul Schimpf, businessman Gary Rabine and venture capitalist Jesse Sullivan change them?

Is Mayor Richard Irvin likely to join the GOP gubernatorial race? Others?

IL’s $530 billion public sector pension shortfall:

Also included in the show is a discussion and clips from a Wirepoints Facebook Live discussion of IL’s $530 billion State and cities’ pension shortfall, which translates into an average liability of $110,000 per IL Household.

Berkowitz asks is that huge pension liability for future IL taxpayers a barrier to IL attracting businesses and population from our competitor states, all of which have much lower pension liabilities.

Also included in the show are video clips of IL GOP Gov Candidates Bailey, Rabine, Schimpf and Sullivan commenting on the IL pension liability issue, as well as other important gubernatorial issues for the primary and general


Mayor Richard Irvin and Ken Griffin

Mayor Richard Irvin- getting ready to join the GOP fray? Another headache for JB Pritzker? How will Mega billionaire Ken Griffin respond? Has he already decided?

Berkowitz suggests that Richard Irvin, the African-American Mayor of IL’s 2nd largest city, Aurora, may enter the GOP GOV race, and that could shake things up quite a bit, for the Primary and very possibly the General Election.

How will the current crop of GOP GOV primary candidates react? Could Irvin’s entry rattle Gov. Pritzker and the whole IL Democratic Party?

Ken Griffin, Mayor Irvin and the future of IL?

Could this entry by Irvin spark a re-birth of what many view as a sleepy and dormant IL GOP?

Does IL’s self-made and mega-billionaire Ken Griffin see Irvin’s potential entry into the IL GOV race as an opportunity to help IL become a rejuvenated political and economic player? Could IL once again be a major economic and political force in the Country?
