Lisa Madigan Named Illinoisan of the Year

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan will be honored at the Fall 2011 INBA Convention as our organization’s Illinoisan of the Year. INBA’s Past Presidents voted over the summer to honor Ms. Madigan for her support of openness in state government. Since assuming office in 2003, Ms. Madigan has championed greater accessibility to government for the citizens of Illinois. She pushed for a comprehensive revision of Illinois’ Freedom of Information Act. She also created the office of the Public Access Counselor, which works to educate state workers on FOIA issues and insures legitimate FOIA requests are handled fairly and swiftly.


Chief of Staff Ann Spillane will join members of INBA for brunch on Sunday, September 25 in Springfield to accept the award on the attorney general’s behalf. She will take questions after her remarks.
