Transparency Pledge for Elected Officials

Have YOUR elected officials taken the transparency pledge? You can find out more about the pledge and its authors, Open Illinois. Open Illinois, a project of The Illinois Policy Institute, invites elected officials and candidates to sign the pledge (download it as a PDF file or a JPEG image file). You, of course, can print it out yourself and hand it to your favorite elected official. Have them sign it, then send it to: Kate Campaigne, 190 South LaSalle St., Suite 2130, Chicago, IL 60603. You can also fax it to 312-346-5755. Find out more about the pledge, and see which elected officials have already signed it. The IPI has much more, such as "Is Your School District Transparent?"
