Jim Edgar to receive "Champion of Democracy" recognition

IGPA Distinguished Fellow and former Illinois Governor Jim Edgar is one of four Illinoisans who will be honored as a 2016 Champion of Democracy by Illinois Common Cause. Edgar will be honored on Wednesday, Feb. 10, in Chicago. Common Cause says that since leaving the governor's office in 1999, Edgar "has been an outspoken advocate for reaching across party lines, calling on leaders from both parties to work together to find solutions to the problems in our state."
