Two hours after posting about the mysterious Dillard letter resigning as Illinois Chairman of the American Legislative Exchange Council, it arrived from Dillard’s office in my email
The letter is a stunning rejection of all that ALEC stands for and the anti-union work Dillard has engaged in these past years.
It just says he didn’t have enough time to do ALEC’s work and run for governor.

Dear Mr. Scheberle:
As you know, I am currently in a hotly contended race for the Republican nomination for
Governor in Illinois.
The demand on my time has been even greater than when I ran in 2010. As a result, I
have to admit I just don’t have time for everything. I cannot reduce my commitment to
my family or my legislative duties. And, my senatorial career will end next year.
I am therefore resigning as Public Sector Co-chair of ALEC. I will assist in identifying as
Co-chair to work with Representative Reis.
Illinois State Senator- 24th District
