Governor Rod Blagojevich has declared Sangamon County a disaster area. Does this mean he will come visit it now?
Seriously though, I think this may have been one instance where having the Gov living here would have been an advantage. Normally, I’m a traitor to the community by insisting it mostly doesn’t matter where in the state the governor lives. But had Blago been here last night, I think he might have been able to assess the situation better and called off work for all non-essential State employees earlier. I’m not at all close to that situation but listening to the coverage this morning, I got the sense that there was a lot of unnecessary confusion among State workers as to what the plan was.
