New Springfield reporter

Posted by Mike Riopell on Wed, 01/02/2013 - 12:34

Today we add another reporter to the Springfield bureau team until the end of lawmakers' spring session in May ... or however long it takes them to approve a budget this year.

Doug T. Graham is a graduate student at the University of Illinois Springfield and an alum of Eastern Illinois University. He has previously worked at Consumer Digest in Deerfield.

He'll be hitting the ground running as lawmakers are scheduled to begin their so-called lame-duck session today, perhaps starting hearings on controversial gun proposals and an effort to legalize gay marriage.
