Governor Bruce Rauner hasn't been one to coat the state's issues with sugar. The same applies to the status of the ailing Executive Mansion.
Rauner spoke outside of the Downtown landmark over the weekend. Rauner says determining what needs to be fixed is a work in progress.
Rauner says the Executive Mansion offers a lot more than a nice play for the Governor's family to sleep.
With the elevator out of order, Rauner's 15-year-old dog pumpkin won't be able to sleep next to the Governor and wife Diana because arthritic knees won't let her get up the stairs.
