Rauner appoints two new members of his incoming administration: Jason Barclay as general counsel and Kathy Lydon to lead his Washington office.
Jason and Kathy will both bring invaluable experience and expertise to the governor’s office. Jason has a top flight legal and strategic mind and brings a deep understanding of how one (of) the country’s most successful governor’s offices operated. Kathy already has relationships with our Congressional delegation and knows how to navigate the federal government as well as anyone in Illinois. Most importantly, both are committed to transforming Illinois and making it the most compassionate and competitive state in the nation.
