Effective government

Driving collaborative and transparent governance at all levels

Illinois famously has more units of government than any other state. But our tangled institutional web can prevent things from getting done quickly and well.

At the nexus of community, government, and industry, MPC is uniquely qualified to advance policies and ideas that improve our community’s governance. That’s why we educate candidates, offer personalized assistance to elected officials, and speak out on underreported legislative bills and big-impact decisions. So that Illinois runs well, for everyone.
