Commissioner Miller Participates in First Annual Illinois County Lobby Day (Springfield, IL) — The Illinois State Association of Counties (ISACo), in partnership with United Counties Council of Illinois (UCCI), hosted the first annual Illinois County Lobby Day on April 10, 2024 in Springfield, Illinois. Cook County Commissioner Donna Miller attended the event with officials from 40 counties to discuss key policy issues and advocate on behalf of her constituents.

“I’m always grateful for the opportunity to come together with county officials from across the state and advocate for the needs of Cook County residents, and it was an honor to participate in ISACo’s first annual Illinois County Lobby Day. This day was a great way for us to join forces, learn from one another, and work towards the change we need,” said Cook County Commissioner Donna Miller. “Together we can create real progress, and I look forward to future opportunities where my fellow county officials and I can bring more key issues to the attention of our legislators in Springfield.”

Commissioner Miller participated in a Legislative Briefing at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library. Attendees at the Briefing heard presentations from Illinois House Speaker Emanuel “Chris” Welch, Senate President Don Harmon, House Republican Leader Tony McCombie and Senate Republican Leader John Curran. Following the briefing, attendees visited the Statehouse to advocate in support of issues beneficial to counties and their residents.

“County officials perform a critical, if sometimes unheralded role, in delivering important and necessary services to Illinoisans,” said ISACo Executive Director Joe McCoy. “Each year the General Assembly considers legislation that will either help or hinder the work performed by counties. It’s absolutely essential that county officials actively participate in the lawmaking process to advocate for policies that benefit their residents.”

A reception was held for county officials and state legislators during the evening and provided additional opportunities to network and build important relationships among county officials from all regions of the state.
