Springfield Daily Radio – Dr. Robert Marshall interview

On this episode of the Thomas Clatterbuck Show, we interviewed Dr. Robert Marshall. Marshall is one of the Democrats running for governor.

Marshall discussed two main parts of his campaign with us. The first was his opposition to a graduated income tax. He argued that the rich, who would officially pay a higher rate under such a plan, would simply move their money out of state. Marshall is the only Democrat running for governor to oppose the graduated income tax.

His other big issue is splitting Illinois into three states. Marshall shared how the separation would be done, and the legal challenges it would need to overcome. We also got the first look at Marshall’s new map for the state.

On this episode of the Thomas Clatterbuck Show, we interviewed Erik Jones. Jones is one of the Democrats running in the 13th Congressional district, which covers most of Springfield.

Jones shared his experiences working for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight. He was directly involved in uncovering the toxic FEMA trailers after Hurricane Katrina. We discussed his inside look at how Congress can work to hold the executive branch accountable.

We went on to discuss the numerous cyber issues facing the nation, including Net Neutrality and control of ICANN, as well as Jones’ views on climate change. The show closed with his response to what political labels he identifies with, and Jones said he’s an “FDR Democrat.” Find out what that means and more the full interview.

On this episode of the Thomas Clatterbuck Show, we interviewed Bob Daiber. Daiber is one of the Democratic candidates for governor.

Daiber is a lifelong educator, and has been both a classroom teacher and an administrator. We discussed several of the new education bills that have passed in the last year, including the new funding formula. I also get his opinion on special programs for gifted students.

Daiber is unique because he is the first downstate Democrat to run for governor in nearly 20 years. He shares the importance of having downstate voices in both the state government and the Democratic Party.
