Democrat Bob Daiber believes borrowing money can be part of the solution to Illinois’ budget troubles. Daiber says it would be better than a massive tax increase.

He says he’s running for governor to bring stability to the state.

Daiber was a teacher for 28 years and is currently the Madison County Regional Superintendent of Schools. He’s held other local government positions during the last 22 years in the Marine area where he lives. Daiber says he’s always had a manageable budget and knows how to compromise.

Daiber says he’ll fight right-to-work legislation and focus on preventive care in the Medicare/Medicaid programs. He says Gov. Rauner has let the state down by pursuing corporate profits and making things personal with House Speaker Mike Madigan.

You can hear more of what Dauber had to say about his campaign when he visited Ottawa in his interview with WCMY.

  • Rick Koshko lived the first half of his life in southern Illinois, then moved to Ottawa early in his broadcasting career. His first thoughts of broadcasting as a career occurred to him at age five--when it was bed time and he realized the guy on the radio didn't have to go to bed yet. Some irony: for most of the time he's worked in radio, Rick has had to get up very early in the morning to be on the air, sometimes in addition to being up late at night like he wanted.
