This just in…Jaffe, Madigan reappointed; Sambursky to SIU BOT

Friday, Aug 30, 2013

Posted by Barton Lorimor (@bartonlorimor)

4:46 p.m. - Not two minutes after comments were closed for the weekend, the Governor’s Office announced the reappointment of Aaron Jaffe as chairman of the Gaming Board…

Judge Aaron Jaffe of Evanston, who has chaired the Illinois Gaming Board since 2005, has been reappointed to Chairman of the Board. Under Judge Jaffe’s leadership, the board has increased openness and transparency in the gaming industry, notably revoking the 10th casino gaming license in order to rebid the license through a fair and open process. He has consistently led efforts to hold entities that violate gaming regulations accountable. Judge Jaffe holds a J.D. from DePaul University.

The board’s vice-chair and former Rep. Michael Holewinski was also reappointed.

* Shirley Madigan, the Speaker’s wife, will also retain her role at the Arts Council…

Shirley Madigan of Chicago has served on the Illinois Arts Council since 1976 and has been Chairman for more than 20 years. Ms. Madigan actively represents the Council to arts organizations, individual artists, government officials, educators and the business and philanthropy communities. Ms. Madigan has a B.A. from Gonzaga University and a master’s degree in education from Loyola University.

* And the last open seat on the Southern Illinois University Board of Trustees has a new candidate…

Joel Sambursky of Carbondale is a graduate of Southern Illinois University and a president of Liberty Wealth Management, LLC. He is currently on the Board of Directors for the Carbondale Community Arts and is a former president and executive director of the Carbondale Chamber of Commerce. Mr. Sambursky - Southern Illinois University’s quarterback from 2002-2005 - was inducted into the Saluki Hall of Fame in 2012 for having led the Salukis to three straight football conference championships and appearances at the NCAA National Playoffs. Mr. Sambursky holds a MBA and B.S. from Southern Illinois University.

That’s especially interesting given the fight between the Governor, SIU President Glenn Poshard, and a coalition from Metro-east that were frustrated by the lack of trustees with an SIUE background. So bad was that spat that Senate Democratic leadership helped knock down all of the Governor’s BOT appointments without a single “Yay” vote. As you know, that fight also lead to the ouster of board chairman Roger Herrin, a friend of Gov. Quinn. One has to wonder how that area’s legislators will feel about this Carbondale appointment.

* The Governor also acted on the Chicago State University BOT…

Chicago State University Board of Trustees:

Nikki Zollar of Chicago is the president and CEO of Triad Consulting Services, Inc. and also the president of SafeSpeed, LLC. Ms. Zollar is a former Director of the Illinois Department of Financial Regulation and holds a J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center and a B.A. from The John Hopkins University.

* Also…

Lottery Control Board:

Paul Schaefer (reappointment) of Edwardsville is a field director for United Food and Commercial Workers Local 881 and holds a B.A. from the University of Evansville.

Pollution Control Board:

Deanna Glosser (reappointment) of Riverton is the former president of Environmental Planning Solutions, Inc. and currently sits on the Board of Directors of the Illinois Stewardship Alliance. Ms. Glosser holds a B.S. from Illinois State University and a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois.

Prisoner Review Board:

Vonetta Rush of Swansea is a program coordinator for East St. Louis School District 189 and holds a M.A. from Lindenwood University a M.A. from Webster University, a M.P.A. and a B.S. from Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville.

Gotta love the Friday evening news dump.

    Sambursky is a smart young guy and was just named All-Century SIU QB. 3 playoff appearances and the school’s all-time leader in passing yards and touchdowns.


  2. - John A Logan - Friday, Aug 30, 13 @ 5:39 pm:

    Sambursky had been rumored as a potential candidate for the 115th District seat being vacated by Rep Bost. I would have to think this takes him off the playing field.


  3. - walkinfool - Friday, Aug 30, 13 @ 5:41 pm:

    Jaffe will continue to slow-walk any growth in gambling.


  4. - Arthur Andersen - Friday, Aug 30, 13 @ 5:48 pm:

    Ms. Zollar had an interesting tenure as an agency head, to say the least. That hearing could be interesting.


  5. - Elo Kiddies - Friday, Aug 30, 13 @ 5:53 pm:

    What AA said. But to the CSU Board? Maybe that’s a safe place to put her, if Quinn wants to put her anywhere.


  6. - Barton Lorimor - Friday, Aug 30, 13 @ 5:53 pm:

    OK, kids. Have to close up shop. More when we come back on Tuesday. See you then.


  7. - Rollo Tomasi - Friday, Aug 30, 13 @ 6:49 pm:

    Anyone know how how old Aaron Jaffe is?


  8. - Skeeter - Saturday, Aug 31, 13 @ 10:37 am:

    Jaffe was widely considered to be nuts when he was on the bench. Lawyers couldn’t stand being before him, not because he was biased but because he didn’t have close to the temperament required for a judge.

    It sure doesn’t sound like he’s changed much.

    It is just amazing that he continues to have support.


  9. - Quinn T. Sential - Saturday, Aug 31, 13 @ 5:18 pm:

    I find it interesting that an educator from East St. Louis
    was named to the Prisoner Review Board. Is there something to be inferred from that?


  10. - Capitol View - Sunday, Sep 1, 13 @ 9:59 pm:

    I am amazed that Aaron Jaffe wants to continue coping with Illinois state government.
