Quinn appointees yet to see vote
Gov. Pat Quinn in February nominated Robert Flider – a former state representative who voted last year for the 67 percent income tax increase – to head the Illinois Department of Agriculture at an annual salary of $133,273.
It’s been a year since Quinn nominated former Rep. Michael Smith, who also voted for the tax increase, to sit on the Illinois Education Labor Relations Board. The job, which entails attending a meeting once a month with the option of attending by phone, comes with a yearly salary just shy of $94,000.
But it won’t be until after the November election that their confirmations could go to an Illinois Senate vote, if there’s a vote at all. The Illinois Constitution makes gubernatorial appointments automatic after 60 session days have passed.
