Beyond Partisan Label- My Decision

“Our work at For The Good of Illinois
is substantial- and our job isn’t done!”

Today, I announced that I am staying on as CEO of For The Good of Illinois and will not seek public office in 2014.

After consulting with supporters, donors, advisors, and my family, I have decided not to run for office in the 2014 election cycle. 

Now, we are free to pursue transparency & accountability reforms on a non-partisan basis. We will continue to put “every dime, online, in real time” through the Open the Books platform; advocate for aggressive auditing of government agencies; and, when necessary, pursue legal action to expand transparency.

We have been effective at exposing corrupt practices. This will continue…

Our platform of real solutions – expanded transparency, forensic audits, and freezing property taxes – is robust. These policies, along with other necessary reforms, begin to solve the long-term problems of the state.

Together, we are a national leader in pioneering online transparency of Government spending. Our first-to-market mobile app which hyper-localizes twelve years of United States Government checkbook spending to your zip code- is a game changer with national implications.  Stay tuned for more….

My Conclusion: Illinois requires aggressive reforms, and after balancing the pros and cons of each approach, I decided I will have a more positive impact outside of an elected position.

Thank you to all who have supported our work

We have much to do.
