Quinn Taps Unsuccessful Congressional Candidate For Post
Gill has run for Congress four times. Most recently, he lost a close race in November to Republican Rodney Davis in the 13th district.
Gill says his appointment is not a political favor. And the 53-year-old emergency room doctor says he'll actually take "a bit of a pay cut" to work at the state health department. He says he'll still work some weekend shifts at the hospital to keep his skills sharp.
