Illinois 9th’s Representative has started posting her schedule on her website making her the 6th Member of Congress to adapt this vital transparency measure. Check out her schedule here. This is her post from yesterday:
DCCC Women’s Breakfast
Democratic Joint Caucus/Whip Meeting
Illinois Delegation luncheon
Meeting with L. Craig Johnstone, Deputy High Commissioner for the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
Intelligence Committee briefing on the CIA in Lebanon
It’s fantastic to see Punch Clock moving more and more into the mainstream despite some criticism. The trust that schedules build with constituents is priceless and vital in promoting both accountability and honesty. I commend Rep. Jan Schakowsky and hope the constituents of Illinois’ 9th realize what an important step they’re elected official has taken.
