Michaelson, Ron 

Ron Michaelson spent 29 years with the Illinois State Board of Elections, 27 of those as its executive director. During those years he observed much of the state's turbulent political history first-hand, including a contested gubernatorial election in 1982, and the bizarre 1986 gubernatorial election. Michaelson resigned his position at the beginning of the Rod Blagojevich administration.
