July 6, 2018

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Gov. Bruce Rauner has appointed three new members of the Illinois Prisoner Review Board.

Rauner on Thursday called the new members “smart, qualified people.” He says they’re aware of his goal to reduce the number of former prisoners who re-offend.

Lisa Daniels of Lansing is a former Cook County corrections employee and founder of a behavioral health organization in Chicago whose 25-year-old son died as a result of street violence.

Joseph Ruggiero of Wheaton is a first assistant to the DuPage County State’s Attorney. He’s served on several law enforcement task forces.

Patricia Wilson of DuQuoin is a former Department of Corrections employee with experience in substance abuse and sex offender treatment.

The 15-member board conducts parole hearings and makes clemency recommendations, among other duties. Members earn about $86,000 annually.
