Watch the Ethics Town Hall

Good Government Illinois’ hosted the Ethics Virtual Town Hall on Tuesday, August 4 with Peggy Daley and Juliet Sorensen.

Watch the Ethics Town Hall now!

The Cook County Board of Ethics, led by our next Virtual Town Hall guests Peggy Daley and Juliet Sorensen, worked on a package of reforms that the Board passed in January, but has not been passed along the Cook County Board of Commissioners. The Board of Ethics’ failure to enact ethical reforms, and their failure to do basic compliance work like auditing campaign financial disclosures, leads directly to the cloud of scandal and criminal investigations we see today with politicians accused of bribery, and companies paying hundreds of millions of dollars admitting to bribing public officials.
