We’ve added the option of receiving a free daily email of all major stories we post. Just hit the green button on the right or on our home page and enter your email address. You’ll receive a confirmation email and the daily digest each morning.

 

Our readership continues to grow rapidly. We thank our readers for that, and for the growing volume of facts and tips you send. We cannot answer or write about all of them, but we do read each. We make no money from WirePoints and we receive no outside financial support. We do this because we think it’s important.

 

Our goal is to provide a daily, single stop for a hand selected collection of all articles of major significance to the state’s economy, particularly the state and local fiscal crises. Consensus on solving our problems requires, first, a common understand of the facts and numbers. We do our best to present those accurately by selecting the best stories, criticizing the worst, and adding our own comments and original articles. We don’t hide our perspective as fiscal realists because the harshness of reality in Illinois, as we see it, is objectively undeniable.

 

But our problems are fixable, and we know from your feedback how many of you are in for the fight. Let’s win.
