Cook County Clerk David Orr and County Comm. Bridget Gainer (D-Chicago) are launching a new searchable website today that allows residents to see who is lobbying county government. From a press release:
"This new website is a model other units of government should look to
as an example for revealing the work of lobbyists," [the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform's David] Morrison said. "The
curtain is pulled back and the public can see it all - the good, the
bad and the mundane."
