Lt. Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti talked with officials and students at Northern Illinois University and listened to comments from a sampling of local officials during a visit organized by State Representative Bob Pritchard.
“We discussed local examples of sharing services between units of government, sharing facilities and in general avoiding duplication of services,” Pritchard said in a statement on his website. “Many unfunded state mandates were discussed and the cost they add for local taxpayers.”
Sanguinetti toured classroom buildings and met with students in DuSable Hall and Barsema Hall. She took to twitter following the visit to NIU, tweeting, “Enjoyed meeting and hearing from the next generation of leaders from @NIUlive.”
Pritchard said both Governor Bruce Rauner and Sanguinetti “are dedicated to the cause of reducing waste, increasing efficiency and relieving the burden of property taxes.”
