DUNDEE - Republican Cliff Surges spoke with Illinois Review a few weeks ago about his bid for the 33rd District Senate seat. In Part 1 of 4, we learned about his background as a former trustee and a small business owner and how he decided to run for the Illinois Senate. In Part 2, we'll learn more about his perspective on the state's current budget and pension crisis and his thoughts on how things could be turned around in Illinois.
