Government Innovation: What works and what’s next?

This November, voters will head to polls and cast their ballots. Regardless of who is elected, key issues driving the need for government effectiveness and efficiency remain steadfast: Looming budget deficits, falling revenues, and more demands for public services without the budgets to support.

Those working in and with government need to take stock: what’s working now and how do we proactively plan for Illinois’ future.
Join us Thursday, October 11, as Transform Illinois examines the solutions. Hear from local leaders—including reporters and editors from Chicago Sun-Times and the Daily Herald—who will discuss the role of media and government effectiveness. And celebrate our 2018 Transfomers—state lawmakers, municipal officials and citizens—who’ve found creative ways to cut the size, scope and cost of local government to meet their community’s needs.
