Gov. Pat Quinn Appoints Ex-State Rep. Bob Flider Illinois Agriculture Department Director


(Springfield, IL) – February 15, 2012. Governor Pat Quinn today named Bob Flider director of the Illinois Department of Agriculture.

“It is important that our Agriculture agency is led by someone who understands the key role of agri-business in our economy,” Quinn said.

Flider served in the Illinois House of Representatives from 2003 through 2011, sitting on the House Agriculture & Conservation Committee, the Energy & Environment Committee and the Ethanol Production Oversight Committee.

“Bob has a thorough understanding of the issues facing agriculture and agri-business, and he will be a strong advocate for all the state’s agricultural sectors as Director,” said Chris Olsen, Vice President of Community and Government Affairs at Tate & Lyle, a global agri-business with operations in Decatur.

The Illinois Senate must confirm the appointment.

  1. I guess he voted for the state income tax too. Please tell the governor I PAID the tax, what is in it for me?
