The People's Pledge

Demanding Accountability in Illinois State Government

Illinois politics is rotten at its core. Dominated for decades by one man: Illinois House Speaker Michael J. Madigan.

He’s amassed power at all costs, even as Illinois has suffered under his rule. Madigan will do anything to keep his grip on power, even as scandal engulfs his reign. 

Enough is enough.

THE PEOPLE’S PLEDGE requires members of the Illinois House of Representative to promise to oppose Mike Madigan as House Speaker no matter what.

Even if Madigan refuses to resign, our state representatives can still take his power away by removing the Speaker’s gavel from Madigan’s grip.

The People’s Pledge also makes sure a Madigan-like politician can never rise again by placing term limits on legislators and statewide officeholders. The People’s Pledge puts the people back in charge of state government.

The People’s Pledge:

“We resolve to demonstrate our commitment to the people we serve by demanding real change in state government…”
