Biography

Patrick Joseph “Pat” Quinn III (born December 16, 1948) is the 41st and current Governor of Illinois. He is a member of the Democratic Party. He has previously held two statewide offices, Illinois Treasurer and Lieutenant Governor of Illinois. Quinn became Governor on January 29, 2009, after previous Governor, Rod Blagojevich, was impeached and removed from office. Quinn was elected to a full term in office in the 2010 gubernatorial election. As governor he faced severe short-term budget shortfalls and a long-term state debt, all in the context of the worst national economic slump since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Quinn has pushed for spending cuts and tax increases, while trying to raise ethical standards, protect public-sector labor unions, and maintain environmental standards.
