Not everyone is having a good time at the Illinois State Fair.
Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka is complaining that a day at the fair is just too expensive. Topinka says five-dollar corn dogs and cups of beer threaten to make a day at the fair unaffordable for the average family.
She says the fair needs to provide more low-cost options… but must also still generate enough revenue to be self-sustaining. [Topinka appeared live at the fair Thursday on 970 WMAY's "Jim Leach Show."]
