One year ago I woke up as Secretary of State-elect and the first new Illinois Secretary of State in a generation.

I got to that point because of the trust you put in me as you supported me over a long two-year campaign. That was an emotional journey, and the exhilaration we all felt one year ago still moves me today.

But what moves me most is your trust. And as I said on Election Night, “Trust. Not that a big of a word but loaded with more meaning than any other in public service.”

Over the past year, I have been relentless in the pursuit of justifying your trust, in delivering on every promise I made on the campaign trail. And I could not be more proud of my team for helping me do just that.

I promised to repeal the “time tax” – and our “Skip the Line” program has saved the average DMV customer over an hour in line. And that is just the beginning; our modernization program is now fully under way and your interaction with the Secretary of State’s office will only become easier and more efficient.

I promised to protect our democracy – and our Right to Read legislation preventing book banks and our efforts to make Voter Registration easier did just that. I promised that we would use whatever powers the Secretary of State’s office to protect the citizens of Illinois, and we stepped up to help fight car jacking in this state and to prosecute white collar fraud. We cemented Illinois’ status an oasis for reproductive freedom by protecting the privacy of women traveling to our state to exercise their fundamental right of choice.

We have done all this and so much more – and we were in position to do it because of all of you. You are not merely my constituents and supporters you are part of Team Alexi. We still have a lot of work to do to restore faith in Illinois government, and I promise you I will bring the relentlessness from year 1 to year 2. And I invite you to join me on that journey. But for today, I just want to recall the joy we all felt together last year and say Thank You. -Alexi

One of the duties (and honors) of serving as Secretary of State is swearing in the Illinois House Members at the beginning of every legislative session. Last week I was honored to lead the proceedings and swear in the 103rd General Assembly of Illinois. I also conduced the voting by all members which secured the speakership for my friend Emmanuel “Chris” Welch & the minority leadership for Tony McCombie. It was a solemn and important ceremony and as a political ju**ie, I enjoyed the official experience very much. We did, however, also manage to have some fun backstage Kelly Cassidy.

Congratulations to all the members of the 103rd General Assembly!
