Interview: Gov. JB Pritzker
Illinois making progress on commitments it made to reduce carbon emissions and one year ago this week the first approved vaccines were going into the arms of healthcare workers—those are just two of the stories that dominated much of state government’s attention this year. At the center of it all was Governor JB Pritzker. The first-term Democrat is up for reelection in 2022, and he joined The 21st to talk about COVID-19, climate change, criminal justice, and more.
