BLOOMINGTON, Ill.— The Illinois Wesleyan College Democrats invite the campus community
to join them in welcoming Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon on Wednesday, October 30
from 4-5 p.m. in the Davidson Room of the Memorial Center (104 E. University Ave.,

for Illinois Comptroller.
As Lieutenant Governor, Simon is the second highest executive officer in Illinois,

more accountable, accessible and transparent for the taxpayers of Illinois.

Illinois University as a law professor, where she emphasized the importance of participation
in the Illinois Reform Commission, which aimed to restore ethics and trust in government.
