A newly-elected state official approached us at a conference in Chicago and gave the greatest compliment our magazine could ever get. She said that after she had become a candidate, her campaign staff told her to read a stack of Illinois Issues to get up to speed about Illinois government and politics.
Her staff knew we follow Illinois closely. We get some of Illinois' best writers to analyze what's happening, and we're in touch with the players in government. We don't do he-said she-said stories. We discard the daily quote machines, take a step back, and scrutinize what's really happening.
Our coverage is painstakingly nonpartisan. We have an influential audience. Our readers are well-educated, ideologically diverse, and engaged in Illinois politics and government. Half have at least a master's degree, and almost two-thirds affect the decision making process in Illinois government — as association executives, lobbyists, educators, elected officials, and appointed officials.
In publication since 1975 by the University of Illinois at Springfield (formerly Sangamon State University), we have become known as Illinois' leading public affairs periodical. We accept that honor, and we work hard with each issue to live up to it.
Our readers tell us they rely on Illinois Issues to keep up with Illinois government and politics.
