This new database, compiled by the Better Government Association, can help. Some of the information included in these records includes: resumes, educational backgrounds, disciplinary cases, salary levels, pension records, and/or references.
Enlisting the Illinois Freedom of Information Act, the state's open records law, the BGA is obtaining the personnel files of public-sector policy makers and other important public officials - aka Bosses - to share with the taxpayers who pay their salaries.
The aim is to shed a light on those tasked with representing taxpayer interests and making crucial decisions. If select lines in the files are darkened, it's because some information was blacked out for privacy reasons by the public agencies that released the records.
The titles listed are the positions held by the individuals at the time the FOIA requests were made.
