J.B. Pritzker is the most transparent governor of all time

Updated: Dec 9, 2019

It’s such a relief that J.B Pritzker has vowed to be transparent.

Good on Gov. J.B. Pritzker for making one of his first official acts signing an executive order on transparency. It requires all state agencies under his purview to release all data required by law to be disclosed, and to go beyond that whenever possible voluntarily.
We’ve got a crisis in Chicago and in Illinois that involves secret-keeping by those who govern us. Too many government officials don’t comply with laws that compel them to tell us what they’re up to. We cannot monitor nor improve our democracy if its actors are breaking the law, keeping secrets from us and getting away with it.

His administration has kept its promise.
