Over on Twitter, State Representative Linda Chapa-LaVia is doing a nice thing for her constituents: sharing a job posting at IDOT.
That's exactly the type of secondary role that State Reps can play: help make connections/surface opportunities for constituents in their district. Good for her.
But...as everyone knows...she shouldn't waste her time/energy. We don't want her to get burned out by spinning her wheels and wasting constituents time applying for the gig.
Jobs like that don't go to hard-working regular Illinois residents. Nope. You have to be clout'd in by Governor Pat Quinn to get a plum assignment like that these days.
