The Central Illinois Chapter ASPA will present its prestigious 2018 Rail Splitter Public Service Award at an evening reception celebrating National Public Service Recognition Week, May 10, 2018 at the Vista Room on the 29th floor of the Wyndham Springfield, with a lovely view of the Illinois Capitol. The award pays tribute to a public servant (in government or in the not-for-profit sector) whose career exhibits the highest standard of excellence, dedication, and accomplishment. This award is presented annually to an individual who has spent a primary portion of their career working in public service, made outstanding contributions on a sustained basis, and accomplished or caused to be accomplished significant programs or projects within their areas of responsibility to the ultimate benefit of the general public.
The 2018 Rail Splitter Award honoree is Scott Reimers. Mr. Reimers began his career in state government with the House Republican Staff in 1994 and rose through the ranks to become Chief of Staff to Leader Jim Durkin in 2011, a position he held until September 2015. Along the way he managed and mentored hundreds of staff members. As one nominator put it: “Throughout his tenure, Scott has proven to be a bridge-builder and a voice of reason. He is unflappable, knowledgeable, and concerned about the State of Illinois and about its citizens. He is the epitome of an unselfish public servant.” Scott currently serves as Assistant Vice President for State Legislative Affairs for the Illinois State Medical Society. He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from Northern Illinois University and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the University of Illinois Springfield.
