ILLINOIS COMPTROLLER MENDOZA TAKES OATH AND ANNOUNCES TRANSITION TEAM MEMBERS
Susana Mendoza has been sworn in as our tenth Comptroller, and thanks to this press release, I can now share my own news. I was asked to join her transition team, and help bring some accounting sense to our nonsensical governing body. I will be working with a wealth of knowledge from this team and was honored to be asked. I am very excited to learn more about the inner workings of the Comptroller’s office.
Before anyone thinks otherwise, let me make this perfectly clear – I will be running again in 2018 as the Libertarian candidate for Comptroller. This transition team is to help get the new Comptroller up to speed so our state can, at the minimum, keep limping along. I want to help with that so things don’t get worse, and pinpoint some of the (many) issues that need to be addressed within the office.
