Former suburban lawmakers to lead good government group
Former north suburban lawmakers Susan Garrett and Beth Coulson will serve as president and vice president of the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform Board.
The group is a top good-government advocacy organization.
Garrett, a Lake Forest Democrat, joined the board earlier this year and was put in charge this month. Coulson is a Northfield Republican.
“I have long appreciated ICPR’s truly bi-partisan agenda for making government more responsive,” Coulson said in a statement.
Coulson was a former member of the Illinois House until losing a 2010 primary bid for Congress to Republican Bob Dold, who went on to win that race.
Garrett is a former member of the Illinois Senate who declined to seek re-election in 2012.
