JOLIET – Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow was recently elected to serve on the Executive Committee of the Illinois State’s Attorneys Association.
Glasgow was unanimously elected to fill an opening on the 18-member committee during the annual conference of Illinois state’s attorneys, which was held in December in Chicago.
The Executive Committee is the governing body of the Illinois State’s Attorneys Association, an organization that consists of elected state’s attorneys who represent all 102 counties in Illinois.
The Executive Committee establishes the policies and guidelines for the association.
The committee also establishes the association’s legislative agenda, tracking bills that affect Illinois’ state’s attorneys. Committee members often are called upon to testify on legislation that is pending before the General Assembly in Springfield.
“I am pleased that my colleagues selected me to serve on the Executive Committee,” Glasgow said. “The state’s attorneys in Illinois, particularly those in the collar counties, have always worked together on issues that are critical to serving the interests of the citizens they represent. I look forward to enhancing that spirit of cooperation through my work on the Executive Committee.”
Glasgow’s one-year term took effect immediately upon his election.
