See you at Rodney Davis’ Open Government Non-Town-Hall-Meeting tonight
It’s at Parkland. Doors open at 5. The room only holds ~350.
Just as some background, Rod invited State Rep. Brad Halbrook (R-Shelbyville) instead of State Rep. Carol Ammons or State Sen. Scott Bennett – you know, the ones who actually represent Champaign-Urbana.
Anyway Halbrook wants to secede from Chicago, probably the most hilariously bad political position of any downstate politician.

Me too. We haven’t sold out a game since 2016 (kinda) when Mitch Trubisky came to town.
