Dear Reader,

Illinois Issues is pleased to announce that we have a new full-time publisher: Edward R. Wojcicki (pronounced woh-JISS-key). Ed joins the staff on June 8 in our offices at Sangamon State University in Springfield.

Also joining Illinois Issues, as new members of the board, are Elzie L. Higginbottom, chairman/CEO of East Lake Management and Development Corporation, Chicago, and Elizabeth L. Hollander, executive director of the Government Assistance Project of Chicago Community Trust. (For more details, please see page 35.)

To all that have already responded to my letter asking for contributions to the magazine, please accept my thanks. If you are still considering sending in a contribution, remember it is tax-deductible.

One last note. Illinois Issues offices at Sangamon State University will be closed Fridays this summer until August 21, but our Monday-through-Thursday hours will be longer, from 7:30 a.m. until 5:15 p.m. The university decided to implement a four-day summer work week to save energy and other costs.
