Former Gov. Pat Quinn is slated to speak at a City Club of Chicago event in October billed as the “State of Our State.”
The event, which is being held at downtown Maggiano's, has a variety of ticket options. Tickets are $35 fool members and their guests, $50 for non-members and $750 for sponsors.

The former governor is now pushing a petition that looks to put a pair of referendums on the upcoming 2018 ballot. The referendums look to impose term limits on Chicago mayors and create a new citywide elected office, the consumer advocate.
