Gov. J.B. Pritzker wasted little time after his Nov. 6 election (when he was still the state’s governor-elect) to start getting down to business.
Just two days later he and running mate Juliana Stratton traveled to Springfield to announce the first of what would eventually be 11 transition committees – working groups comprised of industry leaders who would serve as volunteer advisors on fields ranging from agriculture to education, criminal justice to the environment.
“Juliana and I have said throughout the campaign we wanted to hit the ground running,” Pritzker said at the Nov. 8 press conference.
The working groups’ input would serve as “guideposts” for his administration, Pritzker said, and he wanted that done at least in time for his Jan. 14 inauguration. And while the meetings wouldn’t be public, Pritzker promised the completed transition report would be.
Except the transition committee report has yet to be released. Amanda says we can expect it today, finally. I’ve been hearing the same thing.
For what it’s worth, Gov. Rauner released his transition report four years ago on January 9th.
