DuPage County is projected to save taxpayers more than $100 million over the next 20 years. To spread the success of this legislation, Cullerton lead the charge this week at Transform Illinois.

“DuPage County has been a leader in government consolidation by creating a model for other communities to embrace to save Illinois taxpayer dollars,” said Cullerton. “It’s important for us to continue this collaboration to spread the success in DuPage County across the state.”

Transform Illinois is a collaboration between local elected officials, civic organizations and research institutions dedicated to promoting and supporting local government efficiency efforts. Cullerton says the meeting was productive and brought community leaders from all levels of government to the table.

“These conversations are vital to streamlining and increasing efficiency at all levels of government,” said Cullerton. “Illinois has over 7,000 government entities that were developed decades ago. It’s important that we make sure government evolves with our needs in mind.”

Transform Illinois is committed to better coordinating research, advocacy, legislation and policy implementation activities that will improve the effectiveness of government service delivery in Illinois.
