We're pleased to announce that Dean Olsen has joined Illinois Times as senior staff writer, bringing with him decades of experience in investigative reporting and covering topics including the Statehouse, health care, business, education and much more. While most mainstream news coverage focuses on the federal government, the reality is that what happens at the city and state level generally has much more of an impact on our day-to-day lives. We're glad to have Dean keeping IT readers informed. –Michelle Ownbey, publisher
