When I decided to retire from the Clerk’s office, I started Good Government Illinois because I believe in speaking out against corruption and pushing reforms to make government more efficient, transparent, and better meet the needs of the people it serves. I also wanted to support progressive candidates and office-holders who align with these values, which I see as central to a good government. David Orr
