Watchdogs: Email Signature Touting Pension Reform Website Not an Ethics Violation

Some state workers are not too happy to find that their outgoing email now contains a message encouraging people to visit Governor Pat Quinn’s pension reform website… one calling for reductions in those very workers’ retirement benefits. 

 

The message is tacked on to outgoing emails from at least two agencies… Public Health and the Environmental Protection Agency. 

 

But ethics watchdogs say the message does not cross a line. While they say it would be a problem if state government emails had a message promoting Quinn personally, there’s nothing improper about promoting the state pension reform website.
