No matter what your politics, it’s witnessing a bit of history when you attend the inauguration of a high-ranking politician. Star 96.7’s Kevin Kollins attended the event, and shared just a few photos from his day.

The J.B. Pritzker era is underway in Illinois.  The billionaire Democrat preached unity after being sworn in yesterday in Springfield as the state’s 43rd governor.

Pritzker said he would work to balance the budget this year, create a fair tax system in Illinois and update and repair the state’s aging infrastructure.

A celebratory Inaugural Ball was held last night on the Illinois State Fairgrounds, where Maroon 5 took the stage to perform.
