Bruce Rauner’s term limit endeavor gets new treasurer

SHARE Bruce Rauner’s term limit endeavor gets new treasurer

Bruce Rauner’s initiative to get a term limits question on the Nov. 2016 ballot just got a new treasurer, according to newly filed disclosures with the state.

At the last reporting period, the initiative raised $600,000 since August and had $458,000 in the bank at the close of the period.

Harlan Teller of Evanston, who now heads the Center for Economic Progress, will now serve as the treasurer of the Committee for Legislative Reform and Term Limits. Records show he once made a modest donation to Gery Chico for Chicago Mayor.

Rauner launched that committee in August, saying he wants to oust “career politicians” from Springfield. He’s vowed that this effort would be run completely independently of his campaign for governor.
