Today on the spin, Amanda is joined by Illinois Third Congressional District representative Dan Lipinski. Congressman Lipinski serves on two committees: Transportation & Infrastructure and Science, Space, & Technology. Dan was able to get multiple bills signed into law, including legislation that creates jobs by requiring a nationwide strategic plan to formulate every four years. Lipinski is very optimistic the House will do some kind of an infrastructure bill

Next, Deputy Governor Christan Mitchell stops in the studio to discuss why give up being an elected state representative to become a deputy governor? And his actions as a deputy governor.  Then, Amanda welcomes U.S. representative Robin Kelly of Matteson 2nd district. Kelly has a BA – Psychology, MA – Counseling (Bradley University), & Ph.D. – Political Science (Northern Illinois University) Robin discusses her role as a member of the house and how they respond to the recent events in Congress.

To wrap things up, Scott Kennedy from Illinois election data stops in to discuss mayor’s race:  Who’s ahead? Outside cash? Tiny amounts relative to governor’s race? also, what’s going on in the 14th district – Burke vs. opponents
